Save the Date! #LightForLIMA vigil evening,
Memorial is a co-sponsor of this vigil, which will coincide with vigils around the world as representatives of the world's governments gather in Lima, Peru, to discuss climate change. Our leaders need to hear a message of hope, as we encourage them to set outside politics as usual. We will gather to pray for them to be bold and do what is right. Details on the exact time and place will be forthcoming, but please plan to attend. For more information see www.ourvoices.net/lima.
Save Another Date! Our Annual Meeting,- 1 p.m.
Please put this on your calendars now, so that you won't miss it: Memorial's Annual Meeting after church on January 25, 2015. We will review the previous year, adopt our 2015 budget, affirm our officers and committees, and talk about our way forward into the future God plans for us. Two important things will be provided: food and child care!
Christmas Tree Sale!
We will sell Christmas Trees again this season to benefit our mission work: the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), our own Emergency Assistance Fund, and the Westchester Martin Luther King Jr. Institute for Nonviolence. Central Korean will participate, and this year, for the first time, we're being joined by our Early Childhood Center!
This year we have decided to give each organization certain days to cover. Memorial is selling trees on , , and . We will have a community open house on , with refreshments, music, and a display of nativity scenes. Many thanks to Kathleen Cotter, who has volunteered to oversee the money and bookkeeping for the sale, and to Helen Andrew and Kim Honig, who are coordinating the Open House.
We expect the trees to arrive on , around in the morning. We need help unloading the trees and setting up the big tree in the sanctuary. On the Sundays before that, we will be working to get the yard set up for the sale.
There are plenty of opportunities to help, and to interact with our neighbors who have bought their trees from us for so many years. And what gets you in the mood for Christmas faster than a little cold air and the smell of evergreen trees??
