NEWS FROM SUNRISE HILL

Greetings this snowy afternoon…. 

Yes, here it comes again.  A few days ago it was supposed to be coming on Sunday…so perhaps we will wake up tomorrow morning to NO snow flurries.**  It is our hope as we once again have our friend, Jeremy Schrauf  leading us in worship.  We so enjoyed him the day of our Annual Meeting and it will be nice to have him back for a visit.  As you may remember, Jeremy is a Lay Leader in the Vermont Conference and comes to us from West Wardsboro, VT.  

Don’t forget our Blue Door Soup Supper this coming Wednesday evening at 5:30 p.m. in the Church Dining Room.  

Guess that is it for now!  Stay nice and warm …and hope to see you in the morning at our10:00 a.m. Worship Service in the Fellowship Room! 

In the Spirit,

Roberta

SOCK DRIVE REVEALS VILLAGE’S SOUL

SAXTONS RIVER, Vt. – This village may find itself nicknamed Sockstons River if the project underway at Christ’s Church gets traction.

   Members of the church are conducting a drive to collect new and used socks for the Greater Falls Warming Shelter from now until Jan. 1, and have dubbed their drive Holy Socks.

   To make the drive more visible, they will be hanging the socks from a clothesline strung in the church in the manner of the stockings “hung by the chimney with care.”

   “The words holey, holy, heel, heal, sole and soul are ripe for punning,” said Wanda Salter, one of the instigators of the drive, “but this is serious business when you’re out in the cold with wet feet.”

   Socks in all sizes are needed, but especially men’s sizes, either new or old, as long as they are in good condition, the heavier the better.

   “Guests at the shelter often show up with wet socks from being out in the snow and rain,” said warming shelter board member Louise Luring. “A pair of dry socks can make a big difference in a person’s health and mental attitude.”

   The church will have a sock collection basket inside its front entrance, which is open weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday mornings, as well as for the Christmas Eve service at 7 p.m. Socks can also be dropped off at the Blue Door free community soup suppers in the church dining room each Wednesday at 5:30 p.m.

  Salter’s co-instigator is Donna Anderson, who can be contacted at (802) 869-3582 for information or to make other arrangements to donate socks.
