Members of Hope Circle will once again be making candy trays to sell, which will benefit our Mission Action projects (health kits, layettes, school kits and quilts). They will meet at 2 p.m. at the Church to assemble the trays on Saturday, Dec. 17.
Christmas Eve services with Holy Communion will be held at 5:30 p.m. at Spirit of Faith Church. There will be no worship services on Christmas Day. The Annual Meeting will be held on Jan. 22, 2017, following a “Celebration Supper” at 5 p.m.
Correspondence was read from The Living Hope Alliance Church of Huron thanking our group for the 19 “Operation Christmas Child” shoeboxes we donated. Their church collected over l,300 shoeboxes for children in Mexico and Guatamala. (Over 124 million boxes have been distributed since 1993 through this International Relief Fund started by Billy Graham!)
A motion was made to give $100 of our yearly collection (Jar Fund) to the Sanborn County Food Pantry and $75 to the Vacation Bible Day Camp to be held in the summer of 2017.
Sixteen care baskets were filled for various shut-ins, new members, or those who have suffered a loss during the year or added a new baby to their family.
Secret Prayer Sisters were revealed with a gift exchange and new names were drawn for 2017. Exchange gifts were also shared.
