Bake sales will begin in the fall. We will also have baked goods at the Annual Western BBQ on Oct 15. Ladies, warm up your ovens; baked goods will be needed for the BBQ. The first bake sale for the congregation will be after first service on Nov 20.
Another project of the Women’s group is Church World Service Hygiene Kit. The ladies will be preparing hygiene kits to be sent to restock the disaster relief warehouse of Church World Service. Preparing the kits are part of Northminster’s response to helping after the earthquake and tsunami devastated Japan earlier this year. The items needed to prepare these kits are as follows:
One hand towel measuring approx. 16’"x 28"
One wide-tooth comb
One nail clipper
One bar of soap (bath size in wrapper)
One toothbrush (in original package) No toothpaste. It will be added prior to shipping
Six standard size Band-Aids
Place all items in gallon size zip-lock bag. Leave at church for pickup.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated on these projects. If you are interested in becoming a part of one of these friendly and loving women’s groups, please fill out contact form on this website or contact the church office.
