From the Outreach Committee Chairperson, Judy Shaffer

Thanksgiving Food Baskets Update…The Outreach Committee would like to thank everyone who donated to the Thanksgiving Food Baskets.  We were able to give out 18 food baskets to our local community.


Angel Tree…We can help make Christmas a special time for area children.  Our Angel Tree will be up on Sunday, December 8.  Stop by the tree, choose an angel, sign them out, and have fun shopping!  We will have 20 children to buy for.  All gifts must be returned UNWRAPPED by Sunday, December 15, with the angel tag attached.  If you have any questions, please contact Tootie Rogers.  If you are unable to be in church on December 8 and would like to participate, please call Tootie and she will mail you an angel.


NSOV Annual Christmas Party…The Outreach Committee will be hosting the annual Christmas Party at Niles Shepherd of the Valley on Wednesday, December 11, beginning at 1:30 pm.  We will be collecting new gifts for this event.  Also, we will need Christmas gift bags.  Some gift suggestions are new gloves, hat, and scarf sets, lotion sets, jewelry sets, and gift sets.  If you would like to donate money, we will do the shopping for you.  Place your check, made payable to Living Lord Lutheran Church with the notation “NSOV Christmas Party” in the memo portion, in the offering plate or mail it to the church office.  Please place your items in the basket under the bulletin board.  If you have any questions, please contact Judy Shaffer.


Christmas Caroling…Christmas caroling will take place on Saturday, December 14.  We will meet at the church at 4:00 pm and go on our route from there.  We will have Fellowship after the caroling.  Everyone is invited to come to both the caroling and the Fellowship or just the Fellowship if you cannot join us for the caroling.  Please see Judy Shaffer or Bob McKinney to let them know if you are interested in joining in this event.
