CHRISTMAS FAMILIES  “Adopt-A-Family” Christmas Program

It’s that time of year when we sponsor and help two families have a good Christmas.  The Daughters will be heading up this project beginning today, Sunday, November 18th.  A Christmas “giving” tree will be in the narthex and filled with ornaments that have gift requests on the back.  Daughters will be nearby at a table to register the ornament you choose.  We have been given two families from the Lutheran Social Services of Indiana.  One family has a father and mother (both age 34), girl (age 17), boy (age 4) and girl (age 2 months).  The other family has a mother (age 21), adult female (age 45), boy (age 2) and girl (age 1).  Food and miscellaneous items are also furnished, along with a $50.00 gift card to be used for meat, potatoes, bread, and perishables.  Thank you in advance for your generosity.  Daughters of the King at St. Alban’s Rose of Sharon Chapter

YOUTH PLAY:  Mark your calendars now for our annual Youth Play on Sunday December 16th at 6:00 p.m.  This year’s play is called “Humbug” It is filled with funny characters that will prove to be inspirational as well as hilarious. We will start off the evening once again with dinner. This year the youth will be serving homemade beef & noodles, mashed potatoes, green beans accompanied with a dinner roll and of course lots of delicious desserts. Then sit back and relax for a fun filled show with our very talented youth. Tickets go on sale Sunday, November 18th, and will be sold every Sunday up to and including the day of the show.  We will sell after the 8:00 services and before and after the 10:15 services.  Prices are $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for ages 4-10, with 3 and under free.  If you have any questions or would like to help in any way please contact Cindy Spice (348-7061)
