Faithful Women of Good Hope
Serving God and Others



Brief Announcements December 5, 2021 The altar flowers and cost of the radio broadcast are given in honor of Margaret Fischer’s 85th birthday today by the Fischer family.

Join Us for a Soup Supper! Yes, it’s the time of Advent and as such, we invite everyone to join us in our dining room for a Soup Supper at 5:00 P.M. (immediately before our 6:00 Advent Worship Service in our auditorium). Soup Suppers will continue Wednesdays— December 8 and 15 with wonderful homemade soups provided by WELCA, Parish Education and Youth Committees.

For those attending the worship service or participating in one of our choirs, it is a time to come together and enjoy a warm bowl of homemade soup with your church family.

If you happen to be one who acquired a soup bowl from our Empty Bowl Project it time to fill them, so bring your bowl; for those who did not purchase a bowl, don’t worry, we have plenty of other
bowls for you to use.

So we can better anticipate attendance for these suppers, please contact the Church Office and let us know who will be there.

Advent mid-week worship services will continue to be held on Wednesdays—December 8 and 15 at 6 P.M. in the auditorium.

It is time to order Christmas poinsettia plants for $10.00 each. Deadline for your order is tomorrow.

Legacy Poinsettia (no plant) orders are due Friday, December 10.

A Christmas Concert will be performed by United in Harmony at 4 P.M. next Sunday, December 12 at Good Hope. The concert will include an audience “carol sing.” A love offering will be taken to benefit Adopt-A-Child for Christmas through Crawford County Job and Family Services. (Donations will provide gifts for foster children ages
0-18 in Crawford County.)

Today is Pantry Sunday. On the first Sunday of each month, you are invited to bring a non-perishable item and place it in the bin in the narthex. These items are given to Salvation Army for distribution.

Ladies, remember to turn your Thankoffering in by the end of this year. If need an envelope, pick one up on the WELCA display in the narthex.

Congregation Council elections, traditionally conducted in early December, will not be held this year. Three people are going off Council and we have only been able to find two possible replacements. Therefore, elections are not necessary. Council will meet on December 16th to appoint new members and elect officers. The new Council will be announced on Sunday, December 19th. -Council

We ask and you always deliver! Thank you to an anonymous person for donating a television for Parish Education. The tv will enable us to utilize additional media to enhance our learning experience. God bless you. -Parish Ed Committee
