Candy and nut sales are underway!  Order forms will be due Sunday, October 28th.  Order forms are in the Narthex.  Terri Lynn Nut Co. products are perfect for holiday celebrations and as Christmas presents!

We are looking for a volunteer to help this year with organizing the Thanksgiving and Christmas gift baskets.  Knowledge of Excel would be very helpful.  Please contact Sharon Lindeman if you might be able to help her.  Thank you!

Two Sundays ago, the children of Prince of Peace put together 22 health kits and 20 school kits.  This Sunday, all of these items will be brought to Gloria Dei for shipment overseas. Many thanks to our sewers, Margo and Nancy Chapdelaine as well as all of those who have donated to this project and, of course, the children who put them together 


And we want to let you know the BOOM COMMITTEE is planning a HOMEMADE CHRISTMAS COOKIE SALE! It will be held both before and after Service on Sunday, December 16th. To help in our planning, we would like to hear from you.  What are some of your favorite Christmas cookies?  Jot down some of your favorites on the poster in the Narthex.  (Watch for future updates.)

Mark your calendars to join us on Tuesday, November 6th for our Ladies Lunch at Fork & Spoon, 1264 State Street in Lemontl.  Please let Barb Vogel know if you will be able to attend
