Our annual night of caroling is coming up on December 2nd. We’ll visit several people in Clay Center, the Leonardville nursing home, and many around the area of the church, then have dinner in Riley at Gambino’s. We’d love to bless those we visit with cookies, so please bring a dozen by that Sunday morning so we can get them packed up!
Cookies and Carols is back! Sunday afternoon, December 2nd, at 3pm we’ll be decorating cookies and making crafts with the kids before we go caroling. Join us for this fun time, sharing Christmas joy with others.
December 9th is our Christmas Program! That morning youth of all ages will perform a program for us, afterward we will have refreshments and a time of fellowship. Last name A – L bring a finger food, M-W bring a sweet treat!

UPDATE from the Food Pantry in Northern Riley County ……
On Saturday November 17th, 35 families were blessed with a Thanksgiving basket full of food. The families are given a choice of either ham or turkey for their Thanksgiving meal. Some of the other items that they get in their Thanksgiving basket is: stuffing, cranberry sauce, canned yams, canned vegetables, jello, fruit cocktail, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls, pumpkin and etc.
November 3rd, we did a record number of families – 22 with 66 individuals in those families. Our previous record number was after the ice storm when we had 21 families with 72 individuals. We were recently given 300 pounds of venison. God continues to bless this mission everyday even though it is getting very hard to keep food on the pantry shelves, but our baskets of blessings continue to overflow. Thank you for your food donation to the Food Pantry.
If you are interested in joining our church, instructions and applications can be picked up in the church office. They are located on the wall in the church office.
Study Bibles are available for those who do not have a Bible of their own. You may pick one up at the Welcome Center. The Bibles are provided as a gift to you.
