Ladies...We are needing any Christmas greenery from your yard, shrubs, trees, etc. that you can spare.   These will be used to decorate our church for Christmas.  As most of you know, our budget is tighter than it has been in years past, therefore, we are depending almost completely on donated greenery.  We would greatly appreciate your help in this.  Please help us make our church a lovely, festive and welcoming place by contributing.  There will be a box in the upper gathering hall for the greenery.  Please bring all greenery by FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2010.  For more information, please contact Lauren Shaw or Meg Decoudres.
EXAMPLES OF WHAT IS NEEDED: Magnolia, Spruce, Fir, Pinecones, Holly (berries)

Thank you so much and happy clipping!!

Mums, Anyone??

In addition to the pumpkins you all are loaning us (subtle reminder!) to decorate for the Thanksgiving service on Sunday, we will have some mums in fall colors that will be available for purchase for $10.  Plan to bring ten bucks to the service and check "table decoration" or "hostess gift" off of your Thanksgiving checklist.

We need one more helper to decorate the tables on Sunday after worship for about an hour. Contact Hallie Wagner (205) 613-6444 or if you're interested.

Lend Us Your Pumpkins...(or your gourds or squash).

If you're willing to loan us your (uncarved) gourds, pumpkins, or squash (all sizes, shapes and colors welcome) to decorate tables for the Thanksgiving service (Sunday November 21 from 5-7) please drop them off at the church on or before Sunday morning November 21st. You'll be able to take them home after the evening service.

If you'd like to help decorate tables on Sunday Nov. 21 after worship, email or call Hallie Wagner ( 205.613.6444).

Ladies!!  Get in that closet and pull out those items that you just aren't wearing anymore.  The Women's Ministry at FPC is currently sponsoring an in-house clothing drive to benefit the women and children from The Lovelady Center.   Prayerfully consider giving any and all clothing that you just don't need any longer.  Below is a short list of the needs of The Lovelady Center.  Please bring the items to the church and place them in a designated box in the KC classrooms.  Also, please visit the website to read a bit about this amazing ministry.  For more information, please contact Whitney Oliver.  Thank you!
