A reminder from the Fundraising/Fellowship Committee – there is still chicken breast and sausage in the freezer that is for sale.  Chicken breasts are $2 per pound, weight marked on the package and sausage is $3 per bag (2 pounds).  As always, if you need more information, contact Donna Curdt. 


“Souper” Bowl Sunday

On 2/7/21 at Noon – 1:00 p.m. the Outreach Committee is hosting a drive thru “Souper” Bowl.  You can drop off cans of soup this day or put them in the box right inside the far basement door of Fellowship Hall prior to this day.  Let’s beat our 400 can record we set last year!  If you wish, you can make a monetary donation and we will buy the soup.  As always, the donations will support New Melle Food Pantry.
