Cookie Decorating for
Parents & Kids
Parents and young children are invited to gather on Saturday, December 13th at 4:00 p.m. at church.
We will decorate Christmas cookies with the kids. We ask that families attending bring 2 dozen sugar cookies already baked. Some can bring frosting and plastic wrap. The kids will decorate the cookies. These cookies will be delivered to people in need of holiday cheer.
Kids of any age are welcome -- especially infants through 3rd grade. Please RSVP to Marty Hassig so we have enough food. We will chip in together to cover the costs.
5th Annual Chili Cook Off!
This year's cook-off was a fun and fabulous success, with proceeds of $1300 plus raised and given to
the Plainview Elgin Area Food Shelf. Our 1st silent auction was successful as well with many entries
and raising funds of $1200 plus for our building fund. The voting for the best chili of the night was fun
and exciting: the business category voted winner was St. Isidore's and the individual category voted
winner was Jenny Grover.

Operation Christmas Child
Thanks to everyone who participated in our church's Operation Christmas Child project. Many people
filled boxes and many more helped by donating money for shipping of the boxes. Sixty-seven boxes
were delivered to the drop off site at Calvary Evangelical Free Church in Rochester. The boxes will soon be on ships or planes to locations all over the world for children who have no "Christmas" to speak of. In addition to the box of goodies, the children will hear about Jesus and many will accept him as their Savior. Operation Christmas Child is part of Samaritan's Purse organization.
