Cemetery Clean-up Days Oct. 29th, 30th, & 31st

November 4th is All Saints Day and as our normal custom we will be cleaning up the cemetery before that Sunday.

We have scheduled October 29th, 30th, and 31st from 8:00 am to 11:00 am as our cleanup days.

We are still in need of volunteers to come and join us. As we all know, the more hands we have the quicker the work is done! We also have great fellowship and fun while we are working on this project.

Bring your lawn tools, hats, gloves, and whatever else you might like to work with. We will have some tools here also to hand out.

We are looking for a few more people to join in at the WalMart in Seguin on December 10th, Monday, for our annual Bell Ringing for the Salvation Army Kettle Campaign from 9:00 am to 9:00 pm.

A sign-up sheet will be put up in the fellowship hall for those that would like to take part in this wonderful experience.

See Jeff Wurzbach for more details.


College Kits!

It’s close to that time of year again when we get together and put care packages together for our college students.

We are in need of donations of snacks, cookies, and small trinkets. Please do not include any food that might melt, like chocolate.

We are also taking monetary donations to purchase items we may still need and to pay for the postage of these items.

We’ll be putting these all together on December 2nd.

If you have any questions please contact Jeff or Tiffany Wurzbach.
