Girl Scout Troop 50784 is once again collecting new and gently used coats, gloves, hats and scarves to give to those in need at the Dorothy Day House in Danbury. Last year we collected and distributed nearly 700 coats and thousands of hats, scarves and gloves to the Danbury community in need at Santa's Workshop, the Saturday before Christmas. Please spread the word to neighbors, friends and family - we are collecting donations of all sizes - infants to adults. (Important note: while all sizes are needed, we are in desperate need of children's outerwear!). There are so many in need of warmth! We have placed a collection box in front of the coat closet and ask for all donations to be dropped off at the church by December 14. If the coats are too heavy to transport to Jesse Lee, we would also be happy to pick up the coats from your home. Please contact Lindsay Sierakowski (203) 470-4979 to schedule a pick-up. Thank you in advance for your help.
Ridgefield Interfaith Thanksgiving Service is being held on Tuesday, Nov 20 at 7:30 p.m. in the Jesse Lee Sanctuary.
Community Thanksgiving MealIf you or anyone you know would like to enjoy and be a part of a community Thanksgiving meal, St. Mary’s is hosting a dinner at their Parish Hall on Thanksgiving Day from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and transportation is available. Please RSVP by Nov 15: 203-438-6538. To volunteer to help out, please call (203) 438- 6538.
Please donate a gift between now and Dec 7, you will find a basket in the Narthex, labeled for the Bishop Wicke Center. Here are some suggested gift ideas:
This service will not take place in November or December.
We offer, on the second Sunday of the month, a traditional worship service at 3:00 p.m. followed by a finger-food fellowship hour. This service will be an opportunity to sing and celebrate the hymns long celebrated by the church. Pastor Bill’s sermon will focus on the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12). We are looking for some who might be willing to provide rides to people in the community who would like to attend but for whom transportation is an obstacle. If you would be available to help, please contact the church office (438-8791).
