Dozens of beautiful Christmas stockings are in the steel bin by the WELCA display stand, just waiting to be filled by you and given to local children whose names were NOT chosen from the Salvation Army's Angel Trees. Inside each stocking is a list of suggested gifts for four different age groups, and on each stocking is a tag indicating boy/girl/age. Many parents find that filling these stockings with their children is a great way to teach and share the joy of giving. Please bring the filled stockings back by Sunday, November 26. Fill out the attached tag, and leave room for us to staple the stocking shut
Our annual Thankoffering will be collected on Sunday, November 19. You will find special WELCA envelopes in the attendance books in the pews. Please make checks out to Calvary Lutheran Church but notate them "Thankoffering." This money will be divided between local charities and the national and synodical Women of the ELCA. Consider your own blessings, and share as you feel able.

In October I took 2 crocheted blankets for newborns, 10 flannel crib quilts, and 7 flannel receiving blankets to JPS Hospital. The Presbyterian Night Shelter got 1 3/4 lb. of assorted toiletries, 1/2 lb. of paper goods, and 10 paperback books. The Lions Club was given 2 2/3 lb. of eyeglasses and cases. Thank you to all who contributed these items!
