Women's Bible Study: Second Monday of the month @ 4pm. (January 13th)
Quilting: Last Wednesday of every month @ 8:30am. January 29th (not the months of Oct.- Dec.)
Backpacks for the Weekend: For the month of January we will be collecting hamburger, tuna, chicken helpers along with canned tuna or chicken for the backpack program. Let's fill that cart up as well as those hungry little ones during the cold winter months. The coffee can in the grocery cart is also available if you want to give a monetary donation. That money is also used for purchasing food for the backpacks. Thank You, Heather Johnson, Pauline Laughnan, and Sharon Peterson
Basics for Local Kids:This year we collected: 12 mittens/gloves, 13 hats/headbands, 4 scarves, 3 snow pants, 15 coats, and 7 pair of boots. These items will be stored for the summer and distributed to needy families within Pierce County next fall. Thank you again for your donations. Evangelism Committee

The Evangelism Committee would like to thank EVERYONE for their generous support of the Ellsworth Gift Box Program again this year. Whether you donated, wrapped, shopped, organized, or prayed for these families, your actions and service are much appreciated. We also want to thank Thrivent Financial for supporting us with Action Team money to be used toward our project. Thank you to all who donated their old Christmas cards to be used for the ornaments on the tree - they are so beautiful when recycled in that way. I believe we have enough of them for a few years, but next year we will need more wrapping paper. So if you have leftover rolls that you don't want to store, bring them to the container next to the grocery cart and we will use them next year. Heather Johnson, Pauline Laughnan, and Sharon Peterson

Adult Forum: The Adult Forum meets on the first, third, and fifth Sundays of the month from 10:30 am to 11:00 am to encounter how our faith helps us understand the world around us. We welcome lively discussion to seek understanding on topics that interest the class. (next meeting is unknown at this time.) Assisting Minister Workshop: Martin Luther said, among other things, that we are a “priesthood of all believers.” Before, it was only the priest and the deacons who were allowed to approach the altar. Luther saw this as one more way the Church hierarchy tried to separate the people from God. Anyone, he asserted, can approach the altar, just as anyone can approach God. Many churches have responded to this by having a congregation member serve as an assisting minister, helping to lead the service with the pastor. The presence of an assisting minister is a reminder that we are all welcome to come to God, and that we don’t have to be an ordained minister to lead in worship. I will be living out that assertion of Luther’s this fall, and I invite you to participate in the position of Assisting Minister. If you aren’t sure what that is or what that entails, there will be several information meetings (each stands on its own; it’s not a series) where I will lead a discussion on what the duties and expectations of an Assisting Minister are. If the Spirit moves you, please let me know if you feel it’s something you can do in our service together. The next Meeting is unknown at this time.
