NEWS AND INFORMATION

Salvation Army and EXIT 0 Christmas Tags

Exit 0 Tags will be put up on December 5 and these gift tags/gifts will need to be returned by Christmas. Once again you can shop by way of Wal-mart or you can give money if you aren’t able to shop.

CHRISTMAS—Hanging of the Greens
We will be decorating on Sunday, November 21 at 2:00 p.m.  We will need some men/women who can climb ladders and help put the trees up prior to Sunday.  Please see Pastor Cindy if you can help with this task.

CHRISTMAS PAJAMA PARTY
Our children’s Christmas Party will be Sunday, December 5 from 3-5 p.m. in New Fellowship Hall. There will be ornament decorating, a movie, a visit with Santa, and other fun things happening.  PLEASE RSVP by November 27 to kids@eumc.me or SPARK Kid Ministry on Facebook.  Hope to see you there.  Feel free to bring your friends. By the way, this is a pajama party, so wear your pj’s.

Habitat for Humanity
The foundation, plumbing and ground electric is in, and roof trusses are on thanks to the Construction Trades Classes at Prosser Vocational School. They will finish putting the roof on and then work can begin with volunteers. We have some dates for doing light construction.  We need 3-5 people who can work on December 2 {Thursday}, and December 14 {Tuesday}. Please let Bob Youell know if you can help on either of those dates.  This is a great project to help a family get into a home of their own.

COVID UPDATE
Floyd County continues to be yellow and all of the counties around us are yellow, with a 7.56 receptivity rate this week. Indiana as a whole is at 3.6. We have only six counties in red, and three in blue.  We have 21 states showing yellow =1/1.5. . Clark is in yellow at 7.54; Harrison is yellow at 7.61; Crawford is yellow at 6.15 and Washington is yellow at 4.6.   We will continue to practice our protective measures as we continue to move in a helpful and hopeful direction.   When we get down to blue status {which I believe will be very soon} I believe we will be able to begin relaxing our precautions from where we are currently.  I know that we are all growing weary with these practices, but they have allowed us to stay open and do what we have been able to do.  Keep watching for more details for activities to come and be added to our schedule and calendar.  Thanks so much for your cooperation.
