Bethany Bowl, Tuesday, December 14: FED 132 HEAD COOKS: Sonja Grahn and her
mother Marlene Mcallister DISHWASHER: Conrad Rowell VOLUNTEERS: Darlene Colby,
Sarah Procopio, Pete Gomez, Ann DeVaughn, Cleo Facos, Chris Terry, Phyllis Rowell and
3 MHS students. A class from Union Elementary School brought in books and toys for the
children. The Bethany Church School classes made bright placemats for the tables.
Amy Bell, Vera Winters, Chris Terry, Ann DeVaughn and Judy Riolini's desserts were
awesome. Many Thanks.

The Bethany Bowl volunteers appreciate the many donations that arrive at the kitchen door BUT could we ask you tell us who you are and indicate if the offering is really for the Bowl or some other group using the kitchen. We don't want to use something that may be meant for another group.

New Website. New look. New content. New features. Same address:

Today – Beautiful jewelry crafted by Carolina Vasquez of San Salvador, El Salvador is for sale in the parlor after the service. The July travelers to El Salvador fell in love with Carolina and her husband Damian, who own the guest house where they stayed, and with Carolina’s jewelry. All proceeds above Carolina’s wholesale price go toward the San Antonio Grande scholarship fund.

The Board of Christian Education is compiling a list of the email addresses of parents of Sunday School youth, so that we can communicate with you occasionally about the activities of Sunday School. If the office does not already have your email address, please provide it for this purpose. Thanks.

Christmas Day Lunch- There will be a free Christmas day lunch at Trinity Church from
11:30am -1:30 pm. No reservation needed.

Come to the parlor after worship today for a last chance to win the bright afghan made by Judy Ribolini. It will be raffled today during hospitality.
