QUILTING AND PROJECTS
Please join us for project night (bring your own project if you like) in the Fellowship Hall on Friday, Jan. 12, starting at 6 p.m. with a light shared supper. On Saturday, Jan. 13, from 10 to 3 we will work on quilts for Lutheran World Relief. Bring a sack lunch or food to share, and enjoy the fellowship as we work. Your friends are always welcome!

Many thanks to the Calvary women who donated $587 in Thankofferings, and to all who filled 111 Christmas stockings for the Salvation Army to give to children whose names were not chosen from the Angel Trees; thanks also to the women who sewed them!
Nine and one-half pounds of unused Christmas cards were given to Brookdale Assisted Living; they sell them and donate the money to the Tarrant County Food Bank. Just so you know, St. Jude's Ranch for Children no longer uses the fronts of used cards.
Fifty-two knitted caps for newborns were sent to the Children's Hospital in Minneapolis, MN, as no hospital here needed or wanted them. Six books, two sacks of magazines, and one pound of notepads and calendars were given to the Presbyterian Night Shelter. Thank you all very much! Have a Happy New Year in 2018!
