Things I Wish Jesus Never Said
This new message series titled “Things I Wish Jesus Never Said”. We all have our favorite quotes from Jesus and we repeat them often. There are times where Jesus truly challenges us to live your life for him. There are also those verses that we like to ignore. There are those things we wish Jesus never said.

The Monthly Mission Focus
Our Mission Focus for November is the Hats and Mittens Project
It’s that time of year again and your mission committee has chosen to team up with Hats &Mittens -Fund the Warmth program to collect 90 sets of warm hats and mittens for children and young adults who need warm winter gear this winter.We have built a special tree for you to put your donated hats & mittens. Our goal is to collect more than we did last year. The first 10 sets will go to Lake City Public Schools. We collected about 85sets last year and those hats and mittens went to New Creation Baptist Church’s food and clothing shelf in South Minneapolis and to Nellie Stone Johnson a North Minneapolis public school.
We need all sizes of hats & mittens to keep kids ages 3 years to eighteen warm. We especially need waterproof mittens. Gently used hats & mittens are welcome.
You can help with this mission with your prayers, your participation by bring hats & mittens to fill the tree or by your offerings.Thank you in advance for your part in providing for warmth for children who need our help.All the hats and mittens will be delivered to Hats & Mittens the first week of December.
Every year, HATS & MITTENS has had an unprecedented number of requests for warm hats and mittens from community groups serving children. Through their, FUND THE WARMTH program, you have an opportunity to make a 100% tax deductible donation to our mission of ensuring that all Minnesota children in need have a warm hat and mittens during our cold winters. Hats & Mittens has set a goal of collecting 50,000 warm hats and mittens for 2018.
Hats & Mittens, an all-volunteer 501c3 organization was founded in 1996 by Rebecca Jorgenson Sundquist. Its goal is to ensure that the children of our community have access to hats & mittens during Minnesota’s cold winters. Over 600,000 hats & mittens have been collected and distributed over the last twenty-one years. Hats & Mittens partners with The Greater Twin Cities United Way.With your contributions, the Hat & Mitten Project will work with their partner WEAR A KNIT to ensure that we can meet the need for hats and mittens in Minnesota communities.
