One Meal at a Time Mission in 2016
ONE MEAL AT A TIME NOVEMBER 8TH
November is around the corner and Thanksgiving will be here soon.  St. Augustine's has again partnered to help the Byron Saunders Foundation in its efforts to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need in the Central Ohio area. This year, the goal is to reach over 6000 families!

Would you like to be a part of this ministry? We will be packing Thanksgiving boxes at their new storage and packing facility in Groveport. This is always a fun evening -- lots laughter, reconnecting with our friends at Byron Saunders and good will!

Here are details if you are able to help:

Date/Time:
Thursday, November 8 from 4:00-6:45 p.m.

Location:
CWI Gifts Warehouse 
4600 S Hamilton Rd, Groveport, OH 43125

Volunteer Sign-In
Volunteers will be required to sign in at the Reception Desk for CWI Gifts. Once you have signed in there you will need to go back to the other end of the building to park and work on the project.

Volunteers will sort, count and log all donated food and will also put together meal boxes. 

Please let Beth Buehler know if you are able to help.  A group of 8-10 is ideal to get the meals packed and ready to go! Children 7 and older are welcome to come and help.

If you are not able to attend, you can still support the foundation by visiting     


Thanksgiving Blessings to all!

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD BOXES DUE NOVEMBER 11TH
AHG Troop OH2808 is excited to participate in Operation Christmas Child! The Troop will be packing boxes in November - and we’d love your help in spreading the Gospel to children in over 100 countries. To help facilitate this service opportunity, there are four ways members of our parish can support the mission of OCC and our Troop:

Pack a shoebox! We’ll have bags available after service on Sunday to take home, fill with materials (suggestion list is included!) to return for our girls to pack into boxes during collection week.
Donate “Wow!” items or everyday essentials!  Find a great deal on toothbrushes or bar soap? Buy multiples and donate those to be included with boxes that we’ll be assembling.
No time to shop, but still want to help? We will happily accept donations toward shoebox postage; it costs $9 postage per box to ship these to children everywhere. Envelopes will be available after service!
• Pray with us! Collection week is Nov. 11-17th, and we’ve got a special prayer bookmark reminder to help you through the week! 

All donations DUE Sunday, 11/11 at church.  The Troop will pack materials on 11/13, and then will be taken to our local drop-off center by 11/15.

Additionally, you’re welcome to come to our Troop meeting on 11/13 (around 7:30 PM) to pray over the boxes once they’re packed, enjoy some light refreshments and meet our Troop members and families, please let me know as so I can make arrangements for visitors.

CHILI COOK-OFF NOVEMBER 16TH
Whoa St. Auggie’s!  We’ve got a contest brewing.   As you all know, our annual all-congregation Chili Cookoff is just a few weeks away (Friday, Nov 16) and let me tell you, it promises to be a donnybrook.

At Vestry a couple of weeks ago, two-time winner, Jeanie Patrick, challenged current champion and baker extraordinaire, Lauren Quayle for a showdown.  She is aiming to take her crown back—  and as we all know, she isn’t above bribing for votes.  So pull out those chili recipes and give her a run for her money.

And Dr. Falor, our Event Chair had the fabulous idea of turning this evening into a fund raiser for our Building Fund.  So bring a donation of $2–or whatever more the Giving Elf is urging you to put in the piggy bank for our VERY OWN CHURCH.

All this and karaoke too promises to be a most entertaining evening (think of those pictures we will have).  

Everyone is invited to come and enter to keep Miss Jeanie honest and give her a run for her money.
