Daniel In The Lions Den

Children's Worship!

The Holy Moly Lesson for this week is all about: Daniel.

And the Key Phrase associated with this Lesson is:

King Darius tried calling himself a god, but Daniel taught him who the real God was. 

The Key Bible Verse associated with this Lesson is:

“My God sent his angel and shut the lions’ mouths so that they would not hurt me, because I was found blameless before him; and also before you, O king, I have done no wrong.”  Daniel 6:22 

We would love to take a moment to reach out, and thank everyone at our beloved and beautiful Stowe Community Church, for all that you all do to reach out, so generously give of your incredible time, talents and heart, and for raising all of us up, this Holiday season, and all year long!

Happiest Thanksgiving Wishes and Blessings to one and all!

We are in need of baked goods: Nicely wrapped breads, cookies, jellies, brownies and any mason jar items! We also need a few women to be in charge of the baked items. Making sure we are sufficient in donations by contacting people, pricing the goods and selling them. 

Please bake and bring, if you are able, your best homemade holiday treats, wrapped and ready for purchase. Baked goods can be dropped off on Thursday 11/30 and Friday 12/1 between 8:30am-2:30pm and left in the kitchen. Please label your item, "Christmas Fair" as well as what type of baked good it is. 

Also back by popular demand, we will sell gently used jewelry again this year and very gently used toys (no stuffed animals, please!) Starting next Sunday 11/26 donated items can be dropped off in a bin that will be located in the vestibule.


Silent Auction:

We need volunteers to reach out to local businesses and ask for donations.

OR if someone is connected to a local business and would like to donate an item.

OR, if someone would like to donate a themed basket for auction.

Childrens Activity:

We would love to have a table designated for a kids activity such as ornament making or cookie decoration and need several people to coordinate this.

How to Reach Out:

If you are able to volunteer in any capacity, please contact Lauretta Haugh at

Thank you in advance for your participation!
