First Methodist School is Thankful!
Mrs. Connie’s three year old class led chapel this week. They taught us about being thankful to God. November’s Bible verse is Psalm 69:30 (CEV), “I will praise the Lord God with a song and a thankful heart.”
Open Enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year (ages 1 year – kindergarten) is going on now! If you know a family with young children, please tell them about our school so they can learn and grow with us!

Holiday Box for Those Experiencing Homelessness — A program of The Stewpot
The holidays are almost here and everyone, including our friends in need, appreciate receiving gifts in the spirit of the season. You are invited to fill a shoe box with inexpensive necessity items that might make living on the streets a little easier. This is a great project for individuals, families, faith, school or scout groups, and civic organizations! Use an empty shoe box (standard size). Please only use boxes that have a separate bottom and lid. Please wrap the lid and the box separately. The box should not be wrapped shut when finished. Fill the box with a variety of small, inexpensive gifts. Use the gift ideas listed. Please fill boxes with ADULT, UNISEX items only. Once filled, place a rubber band around each box. Add a personal note in a separate envelope. You may enclose a holiday card or note from you/your family or group. (Please do not include addresses or phone numbers.) Place your note inside the box.

- Knit hat
- Small flashlight with batteries

PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE:

Whether you are donating one box or many boxes, please remember that the number of boxes we receive is not nearly as important as the loving care and thoughtfulness that goes in to each individual box! Boxes will be distributed by The Stewpot. The contents of excess boxes may be used to supplement distributions of items throughout the year. Thank you for showing, by word and deed, you care for our friends in need.
THESE BOXES WILL BE COLLECTED IN THE LOBBY ON SUNDAYS, NOVEMBER 17 & 24.
