November 7th News and Notes

Mission Giving

We will collect our mission offering this Sunday.  In November, it will be going towards the Prince George’s Family Justice Center.  Because they are government funded, they cannot accept cash, but can accept gift cards that would be used to assist the families they serve.  If you would like to support them, you can bring in a gift card (grocery stores are great!) or write a check to the church, which we will use to buy gift cards.

Warm Nights

The Mission and Service Committee is gearing up for colder weather and the holidays. 
Please sign up in the Narthex for the fall Warm Nights at All Saints on Thursday, November 14th.
