The Annual Giving tree for the Market Street Mission is up in the Narthex. They are asking for 15 shirts. If you would like to participate, please take the top star and write your name on the bottom one. Gifts need to be returned to the Narthex by December 3rd. LVCAP did not have a list of families in need for us this year, however, Old Farmers Road school in Long Valley is collecting gift cards for some local families in need. Donations to their effort would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, please contact Maryellen Zwingle or Sarah Scudese.
You will be getting a letter any day about our Stewardship Campaign to secure pledges toward the 2018 church budget. We ask that you receive the letter with joy, prayerfully consider a pledge, and then fill out and return the enclosed pledge card to the church. Our campaign this year centers on the Luther Rose that is depicted in stained glass over the front doors to Zion’s sanctuary. The image of the rose that we have created is looking a bit gray – scale. For each pledge that is received, a small sliver of the window will return to full color. We hope that we can eventually see the entire image of the window once more in full technicolor!
Please pick up your September 30, 2017 giving statements in the Narthex today to save us some postage. Unclaimed statements will be mailed this week. Statements reflect both regular and Capital Campaign giving, and include Simply Giving donations. If you have any questions, please contact Barb Schulz at [email protected].
