“Celebrating His Birth!”
During the Advent season as we prepare for the birth of our Lord, we will be collecting food to share with two families in need each from Catlin and Columbia Heights Elementary Schools. Please sign up on the narthex clipboard to bring food from Sunday, December 15 to Sunday, December 22. (Financial donations may also be given to Pat Reistroffer or Barbara Clausen for the purchase of the perishables.) We will deliver the food boxes on December 23rd. Two families from each school will also be on our Christmas tree in the Fellowship Hall for a small gift under $25 and one clothing item. Feel free to go together with another person to make the giving easier, if needed. If you would like to help deliver the food boxes and gifts please let Pat know.
It’s our favorite time of year, a time to sing, and eat, and be merry! Saturday, December 21st at 5:00pm, join us for dinner, drinks and the singing of Christmas carols as we celebrate our Savior’s birth. This is an all ages event in the banquet room at the Carriage Restaurant.
Our walking group meets the first and third Wednesday of the month at 2:30 pm. We leave from Bethany and get outside for some light physical activity, and sometimes a light workout. A great way to exercise and get a little fellowship at the same time. Contact Pastor Megan for more information.
Our Breakfast Group meet Tuesday mornings at 8:00am at The Elks, 900 Ash Street in Kelso. You need not be an Elk’s member to attend and if you arrive before 8, you get free coffee. Women are encouraged to attend. Need more info? Contact Bill Zimmerman or Roger Lee.
