The doors open at 9 am at 3285 S. Cleveland Massillon Road for our Annual Rummage Sale. You can hope to find all sorts of fun and necessary treasures.

Please continue to gather items for the Rummage Sale, which is our most successful annual fundraiser.  Drop-off is underway.  If you have any questions please contact Nancy Bracht and / or Janet VonGunten.

Items being made available for sale may be left in Classroom B for storage prior to sale day. Drop offs may be made between now and Saturday the 21st when the church is open. 

OF IMPORTANCE: The organizers have requested that TVs and computers NOT be brought to the church as they are difficult to deal with.


By Way of Reminder


 Calling all Administrators!
 In order to support Mary Ann I am calling on all of you Administration types to help support Mary Ann in the requisite office duties in the foreseeable future. Please contact Kurt if interested and we will look for a date to lay out a strategic plan for the office.

 Acme Community Cash Back:  An easy way to give back to GLO.     
        
1) Shop Acme Fresh Markets. 

2) Bring your Acme receipts to church. 

3) Place your receipts in the donation envelope. 

4) At the end of the year Ruth Kaser will submit our receipts and Acme will give 5% back to the church. 

Thanks for participating.

Notices
We have had a number of doors found open recently. So, by way of reminder, we ask that any doors marked with 'Emergency Exit Only' signs be   opened only in the event of emergency. This applies to the exterior doors at the Fellowship Hall, Rainbow Room, the Nursery, the Kitchen, and the west Corridor exit door outside Classroom D.  When left open these doors allow cold air and critters into the building.  Please refrain from opening these doors, but if the doors must be opened, make sure they are latched closed tightly before leaving.
