Special Giving for December
The Salvation Army of Washington County
Have you ever wondered what it would feel like not to have enough money to pay your rent? Right here in Washington County, many families struggle just to put food on the table. They fall short on paying for what is considered everyday needs.
In 2013, The Salvation Army of Washington County helped 217 men, 307 women, and 412 children with rent and utility assistance. That meant that 936 people were able to stay in their homes! So as we approach this busy time of the year – please keep in mind something so basic – A Place We Call Home.
The Salvation Army of Washington County helps those in need in the following ways:
• Rental Assistance
• Utility Assistance

• Disaster Services
Please use your December Special Giving Envelope to donate to The Salvation Army of Washington County during this holiday season. 100% of your gifts will go directly to support those in need around us. Please give generously!
Colorful Year of Sunday School Begins
On September 15th the Redeemer Sunday School started off on a trip to “Follow and Obey God’s Colorful Way”. First we started with a parent meeting at 9am where the kids and parents met their teachers Ms. Natasha (3K-4K), Ms. Kristy (K-2nd grade), Ms. Brianna (3rd -5th grade) and Alex (helper). Then the kids went to the choir loft where they met music leader Ms. Shannon, who started teaching them the new song about Rainbows! After singing, kids and teachers went to their class areas and worked on Rainbow Projects, look for them decorating the hallway outside the office and Sunday School Classrooms. When crafts were done, all classes got together to play with the parachute and enjoy and rainbow snack. It’s going to be a very COLORFUL year in Sunday School.
Fall Book Study
Pastor Marcia is planning a book study for the Fall. The book is Reclaiming The “L” Word. This would be a monthly book study. If you are interested, please let Pastor Marcia know.
