it! Many volunteers are needed. Sign up in the narthex or see
A SURPRISE OPENHOUSE will be held in honor of Pastor Don

TOILET PAPER DRIVE - Toilet Paper is once again needed at
FNOW (Family Network of Wyoming)! In last year’s Toilet Paper
Drive, we collected over 1,200 rolls but that amount lasted only till
August! SOOOOOO we are once again having a toilet paper
collection and maybe we can top that amount this year!!! Please
watch for sales and bring in toilet paper (as much as you are able)
through the end of February! Thanks in advance!
UPDATE ON OUR ‘KAREN’ REFUGEE FAMILY:
As of the printing of the bulletin, an apartment has not been secured by
Bethany so Jae (Grandma) and Julia (8 year old granddaughter) will be
staying (for just a short time) with the ‘Karen’ family who is living in Faith’s
parsonage. Meanwhile we can continue collecting household items for their
apartment. Thank you for all the items that you have already signed up for.
Please bring them to church within a few days because we hope to clean &
set up their home this week sometime. We will contact you about picking
up large items of furniture.
What can you do to help?
• There are still items you can donate…sign your name on the list in the narthex. We are doing well on furniture except for beds….we would like 2 twin beds but depending on the size of the bedroom, we may be able to accommodate a larger bed. If you have a bed, please write down your name and the size of the bed…and Shari will contact you.
• Sign up in the narthex if you can help with cleaning & setting up the apartment, or with transporting furniture……and what days & hours you are available.
