Stargiving will be here before we know it. Thursday November 21st @ Catlin School 5 pm.

We need a lot of food items. The list and sign-up sheet are in the Narthex now.  If you are donating food, please write how much of the item you are bringing.   If you are looking for a way to use your Thrivent Dollars, Think of Stargiving.  We also need volunteers!  Please, if you can help that day, sign up & put that next to your name.  If you have further questions, ask Joyce or Tori.

Thanksgiving Food Boxes

The Service Committee will be collecting food for food boxes for two large families at Columbia Heights and two large families at Catlin Elementary, who would not have a holiday dinner without our help. Please sign up for food donations on the clipboard in the narthex from Sunday, November 16 to Sunday, November 24. (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 Monday, November 25th.  If you would like to help deliver the food boxes, please let Pat or Barb know. 

Family Promise

 We have agreed to be a support congregation for Family Promise of Cowlitz County. This means we will be working with Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, Rose Valley Friends Church, and Renewal City Church to provide a hand-up to families who are experiencing homelessness. Our hosting dates are   Nov 24-Dec 1. We are asking for you to volunteer your time, gifts, and funds to help provide a reasonable stay for the families. If you would like to help, or would like more information about Family Promise, contact Greg Filer in person or via email:   Thank you all for all that you do.

Walking Group

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.

Breakfast Group

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.
