St. Martin's Episcopal Church

Patti is not posting this message due to a fried motherboard on her computer. This is at the worst possible time for this to happen and I am playing secretary for her until another computer can be found running for her to use. So I offered my help since I am slightly trainable over the phone, and can take notes and orders with a smile. So with a prayer this post will turn out okay.
This Year's Christmas Celebration will take place at St. Martin's Episcopal Church. Emily Peas, a parishioner, contacted Patti to see if she knew of a family that was in need of a Christmas tree this year that might otherwise not have one. Patti could think of 3. She ultimately decided on our family and what would have been a total surprise, is only a surprise to my 2 little ones. She knew the whole family has allergy issues and wanted to know if pine was an issue for us. I told her only for me, but for the happiness and joy it will bring to the kids it will be worth a stuffy nose! I can't wait to see their faces! Emily also asked where the Christmas dinner would be held this year. As of that time I know Patti had struck out and was praying hard to come up with a location. Patti told her we had no where yet and Emily mention they just built a new Fellowship Hall at the church dedicated to the needy and she would speak to the church about their helping with us using the Fellowship Hall. She came back to Patti with not only the use of the Fellowship Hall but they are also providing a contemporary band, Santa, and helping with the food! Boy does God answer prayer!
The schedule is:
5:30- 6:30 pm arrival, Christmas Carols, and Meet and Greet
6:30- 7:15 pm Buffet Style Dinner
7:15- 7:30 pm Reading of the Giving Tree by Shel Silversten
7:30- 8:30 pm Santa's Arrival and Gift Giving

We also still need 20 pair one size fits all gloves and 40 scarves. For more information please call Patti 566-1946.
