After Worship this Sunday...

We will begin collecting donations for Heifer Living Gift Market. Animals and trees can be “purchased” on behalf of a family in need, allowing the family to create income and a future for their community.

We will have festive honor cards to give out if you would like to buy a llama for your mama or some honey bees for Aunt Louise!
You will be able to “shop Heifer” until December 17.

We are asking for a $12 donation per poinsettia that will go toward defraying Worship Committee expenses. You can place your completed form in the basket in the narthex, or turn it in to the church office with your check made out to JKPC. Plants can be taken home after either Christmas Eve service. Deadline for ordering is Sunday, December 10.
