HOLIDAY BAKE SALE: Calling All Bakers & Candymakers
Do you like to bake cookies, cakes, pies, breads? Are you an expert candymaker? Is there a special family recipe in your cookbook? Do you make some great holiday treats that you are dying to share? We need your goodies for our Holiday Bake Sale on Sunday, December 17.
Are you interested in joining the fun as we package, wrap, label and price all of the treats in the church kitchen the day before the sale? Or would you like to work at the bake sale table and watch the faces light up when folks see what goodies we have to offer? All kinds of help is needed and will be appreciated.
Contact Carolyn McNamara at firstname.lastname@example.org
or text (402) 709-3192
All bake sale proceeds will benefit youth education.
YES Cold Weather Gear Donations
Our church is collecting hats, mittens, scarves, socks, and gloves for YES (Youth Emergency Shelter) this holiday season. Please place your donations in the nicely decorated gift boxes located in the church foyer on Sunday. This cold weather gear donation drive runs through the month of December.
Sunday Morning Greeters
We have an ongoing need for Sunday morning greeters/ushers. The tasks are fairly simple – make sure the doors are unlocked (and then locked), collect the offering, and share a hearty “Good morning!” to all who enter. Go here to learn more and sign up: bit.ly/uugreeters

Sunday Morning Tech Crew
We are looking for more in-sanctuary techies for Sunday mornings. Our tech team has done a fantastic job making the process easy and intuitive. Eager to help our Tech Team or want to learn more? You can reach out to Stef Lewis (email@example.com), who is lining people up to shadow experienced techies and learn the ropes. A checklist is ready for you, and video training will soon be available as well.

From the Membership Team:
Front Door Wreaths
We would like to make the front entrance more welcoming year-round. Seasonal wreaths placed on the front doors are a great way to warm the entrance. If you’re able and willing to create and/or purchase these wreaths, please contact Membership Coordinator, Melissa Gibson, at email@example.com.
You may have noticed the new yellow cards at the entrances to the sanctuary. These cards replace an assortment of other papers. Visitors can input their information, members can update their contact information, a space for Joys & Concerns is available on the back, and there is a QR code to find upcoming events and programming on the church’s website. Everyone is encouraged to make use of these cards. Just drop them – filled out or blank – in the offering basket!
Rainbow Lanyards for Membership Committee & Greeters
All members of the Membership Committee and Sunday Morning Greeters are encouraged to wear the new rainbow lanyards during Sunday services and coffee hour. This designates you as someone for visitors to approach with questions (and if you can’t answer the question, you can guide them to someone who can). Lanyards are available in the middle drawer in the foyer (beneath the parking validation area).
