ELCA World Hunger Good Gifts Project
We will be collecting for the ELCA World Hunger Good Gifts project again this year starting January 1st through Easter Sunday. Pick up a piggy bank or a Global Barnyard bank and start putting aside your loose change for such a worthy cause.
After Easter we will count all the money donated and the children in Sunday school will decide what animals or farm materials to send to third world families in need. Perhaps we will be sending a few goats, chickens, beehives and orchards, but a cow or llama or two wouldn’t be bad also.
So pick up a bank and start collecting your change. Easter is only a few months away.
Stir Fry Night at St. Mark
Speaking of great food and fellowship….
The Fellowship Committee is hosting a Stir Fry Night on January 26 at 6:30pm for children and/or adults.
The cost for adults is $12.00 and children under 12 is $9.00 which buys the food you choose to use in your stir fry. Chef Rick Pado is the master of ceremonies and teacher for the evening.
Unfortunately, due to kitchen cooktop capacity, attendance must be limited to 16 people so sign up as soon as possible on the beautiful sign up poster in the narthex!
Haiti Mission Trip-Feb. 2019
Gary Laabs will be going on a medical-surgical mission to Haiti. Donations are sought in support of this mission and may be made directly to Gary, sent to the Hanover First Church of God at 600 Fairview Drive, Hanover, or may be included in your church offering by writing on the “other” line — Gary Laabs-Haiti Trip. Donations are also needed of pain relievers (such as aspirin, ibuprophen, Advil, Bufferin, Motrin, Tylenol, Aleve) and vitamins (but, no gummies, please). A box is located in the narthex for these items.
(“be on the lookout” for you non-police lingo people) So be on the lookout for more information and posters!
