The new hymnal, "Lift Every Voice and Sing II", is being added to our pews as a uniquely American, easy-to-sing, collection of gospel and old-time-favorite hymns. We now have 60 LEVAS hymnals in the pew racks. 32 copies were dedicated in honor of Al and Louise Fridkis given by their children.  The labels inside the front cover dedicate those books in their honor.  If you would like to purchase a hymnal, simply notify Mary Bendas, our trusted treasurer.  Let her know what you would like written on the inner label.

Love in the Name of Christ has issued a plea for blankets, quilts, and sleeping bags! Cold weather has arrived and the need is great - these items do not need to be new but need to be clean and in good condition. As always, just leave your donations in the basket in the Parish Hall's first alcove on the right. Warm thanks!

Platoon News - We have been assigned a new platoon. It is a US Army Platoon deployed from Massachusetts to Iraq until May 2017. They are an Army Medical Evacuation Platoon flying Blackhawk helicopters to pick up wounded.  I will send a package soon and will ask the platoon what kind of items they would like to receive from us, but we've been doing this for many years and the things that are most popular are snacks, personal care items, magazines, DVDs and letters. The items are collected in the basket near the entrance of the church. Thanks for your support. Marcy Wagman
