Gathering Place Volunteer(s) and Donations Needed

If you are interested in a once-a-month volunteer opportunity, please consider helping at the Gathering Place soup kitchen.  We are in need of 1 or 2 more regular volunteers. Members of our church help out on the second Wednesday of each month from approximately 4:30 to 6:30.  We actually serve from 5:00 to 6:00 but also make sure things are ready to serve and then do clean up afterwards.  The Gathering Place (located at 1448 E St) serves over 25,000 meals each year.  Contact Linda Steiner 402-786-5555 for more information.


Also, from now until 12/31/16 your donations to the Gathering Place will be matched by a generous donor.  Their goal is to raise $34,000 by the end of the year to commemorate 34 years of service at The Gathering Place.   Donations can be mailed to:

Christmas Program
Sunday, Dec 11 @ 11:00 am


“Around the World,  It’s Christmas” by John Purifoy

There will be an important rehearsal on
Saturday, Dec 10th from 9:30 - 11:00 a.m.
in the sanctuary.

And of course, there are rehearsals every Sunday morning in each individual class during the Sunday School hour.  Having your child here every Sunday to practice will not only be loads of fun, but they’ll also feel prepared for the big day on the 11th.  FYI – the wee ones in the Nursery Sunday School will also participate, however, they do not need to come to the Saturday rehearsal.
