In October a donation was sent to the UCC Florida disaster relief on behalf of First Church Pembroke. Thank you to all for your caring and concern for others.
Missions has two important projects for November. One is our Military Basket which is given to the Military Support Group of Pembroke along with a monetary gift from all of us at First Church. Items requested by the Support Group are:
Lip balm (container not stick)
Hand and Foot warmers
Unopened Christmas/Holiday cards
Crossword puzzle books
Word Search books
Small handheld games
Gum packages and wrapped hard candy
We have a Military Mailing Box – we are asking that everyone stop by and take a Christmas/Holiday card from the mailing basket, sign it with Christmas and Holiday blessings and return it in the Mailing Box. The Sunday School children will be filling out a card and adding something special for our Military Basket too. The Basket will be given to the Military Group on Nov 11th on Veteran’s Day or at the Veteran’s Day ceremonies on the 12th.
The Pajama Clothes Line is up and some donated pajamas are already hanging on it! Praise God. Donated pajamas will help the needy children in Pembroke and surrounding towns. On the clothes line and in the laundry baskets you will find a zip bag which contains a card telling the size of either a boy’s or girl’s pajama that is needed. Please keep the card in the bag along with the pajama, return it to the laundry basket. Thank you
Looking forward to our Holiday Fair and First Church Thanksgiving Dinner
And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus Philippians 4:19
