Socktoberfest Success - The Mission Team would like to thank all who contributed to our sock drive.  It was a huge success! The socks are being delivered to Our Daily Bread this week just in time for the arrival of colder weather. A simple thing like a new thick pair of socks is much appreciated by those living on the street or in their car. Also a special thank you to Ruby and Henry Wulf for using one of their Thrivent Action cards for our sock drive;  you can buy a lot of socks for $250!  If you are a Thrivent Member and would like to help the Mission Team on one of our projects please see Ruby Wulf, Pastor Rhoades or Brenda Concienne for details.
Thanks again for your generosity!
