Dear Shady Grove Family,
Please read below for this week's announcements from Shady Grove-
-Missions: Our annual Turkey Dinner Fundraiser will be held a week from this Saturday, November 14 from 4:30 to 7pm. Due to COVID, it will drive-through, curbside take-out only. Cost is $10 per plate for adults and $5 per plate for children 6 and under. We still need 2 volunteers to cook 2 turkey breasts and 2 volunteers to help serve for 5:30 to 7pm. Please call Wilma Zollweg at 865-397-5380 if you can help with either of these. Thank you, Church Family, for your ongoing generous support on this annual event.
Crackers for Christmas in Jefferson County: During the month of November, we are taking donations for the Jefferson County Chamber of Commerce Christmas Food Baskets for needy persons and family. Because of COVID, we have been asked to only give money to cover the cost of the 400 boxes of crackers we normally give. Our goal is to raise $600 to support this worthy cause. Please consider giving the amount you would spend to buy crackers.
Toys for Tots: Terry Witt has placed a collection box in the Narthex. Please bring new toys through the month of November to help bring joy to children who otherwise might not get any Christmas presents. We are especially in need of toys for children 10 and up.
- If you have been asked by Pastor Jason to write a devotional for our Lenten Devotional Book, please be sure to email your devotion to him ASAP. If you have any questions, please contact the office.
