Kid’s Book Drive
Throughout September we will be collecting new and gently used books, with an emphasis on those suitable for infants to age 5 (board books and picture books are especially good). Click here for more information.
September Coins of Love
September’s “Coins of Love” will be used to purchase food for the Thanksgiving Baskets. We have already started preparations for the Thanksgiving Basket Ministry. If you are not familiar with this ministry, we have been giving food to families in the West Allis area for Thanksgiving for 45 years. We receive names of families whoare having financial difficulties from elementary schools in the area as well as from our church families. Each family receives a turkey and other food needed to prepare a Thanksgiving meal. Each basket costs $50.00. This year our goal again is to give Thanksgiving Baskets to 180 families. The ministry is funded mainly from donations from this congregation. We hope that you will give generously to support the Thanksgiving Basket Ministry. September 19 will be a special worship service celebrating 45 years of the Thanksgiving Food Basket Ministry.
