Thanksgiving Baskets
For the past several years we have asked for your help in providing Thanksgiving baskets to the poor in our community and you have responded very generously.  Because of your donations, we have been able to provide upwards of 20 Thanksgiving baskets each year to needy families in our community.
 
We are asking for your help again this year and have set up a schedule similar to last year’s schedule.  As you can see, we are asking for a donation of one item per week.  Many people find it more convenient to purchase and donate everything at one time.  We have plenty of room to store the food so that is definitely not a problem.  The only exception would be if you decide to bring in refrigerated or frozen rolls instead of a boxed mix.  Due to refrigerator/freezer constraints, we ask that you bring that item on November 11 only.  Thank you in advance for your overwhelming generosity.
 
We are asking you to donate one item every week for six weeks using the following schedule:
 
October 14 – Bring one box of instant mashed potatoes
October 21 – Bring one jar or package of gravy mix
October 28 – Bring one box of bag of stuffing mix
November 4 – Bring one boxed dessert mix
November 11 - Bring one box of roll mix or refrigerated or frozen rolls

SAMUEL’S TREE OF BLESSINGS

We are a congregation that has always graciously shared God’s many blessings to us with our neighbors in need in our community.  This Christmas season we are asking for your help in providing gifts for 6 families that are struggling to make this a merry Christmas for their children.  We are adopting our families this year through Nelson elementary school, Edgewood elementary school, and HealthWest (formally Muskegon County Community Mental Health).  We will be buying gifts for the children and parents in each family and have set a limit of $25.00 per person. 
Our “Blessings” tree will be located in the entryway off from the parking lot beginning next Sunday.  The tags on the tree will list the age of the recipient and 2 or 3 choices of items to purchase.  If you don’t wish to shop but still wish to purchase a gift, please consider a cash donation.  You may use one of the envelopes in the pews and place your donation in the offering plate.  Please mark “Blessings Tree” on your envelope and someone will be happy to do the shopping for you. 
Please return your gifts by Sunday, December 16th so we will have time to deliver them to the families.  Wrapped gifts should be placed under the tree in our parish hall.  Please tape the tag to the gift so we can match them up to the recipient.   
Thank you in advance for being a blessing in a child or families life this Christmas.  God's grace and peace be with you in the blessed season and always.

ENJOY THE CONVENIENCE OF ELECTRONIC GIVING
Samuel wants to inform you that we will be offering electronic giving as a way to automate your regular weekly offering. Electronic giving offers convenience for individual congregation members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.  Authorization forms are available on the table in the narthex (lobby) or from Melissa Pfenning, Merry Nyblade, or the church office.   By filling out the form you will be authorizing your financial institution to electronically deposit the amount of money you choose to Samuel Lutheran Church.   You will have a choice of depositing weekly (on Monday), monthly on the 1st, or monthly on the 15th.  At the present time we have two (2) funds set up for you to choose from: the Current Fund and the Maintenance & Repair Fund.
