Stacy Wyant helped prepare the food for our successful Harvest Dinner on 11/3.  This event is always a tasty crowd-pleaser!

We recently had a successful harvest dinner.  Thanks to John Prinzivalli and about 30 volunteers that set up, baked pies, cooked turkeys, prepared the food, served and cleaned up.  All of us were tired at the end of the day, but overjoyed to share this meal with the community.

November 4th was All-Saints Sunday.  We remembered the 5 individuals from our church family that passed this year, as well as our friends and family members who are now in their heavenly home.  After communion and church we shared first Sunday brunch together.

Pastor Sandi put a sign up poster in the sanctuary for community Thanksgiving baskets.  This year we will be assembling Thanksgiving dinner baskets for families from the ARC in Yates County.

We sang at the PY Nursing Homes on Veterans Day.  The residents give us so much joy as they sing along with the American and patriotic songs.

We are still collecting items for
Operation Christmas Child.  See Babs if you have questions or need a box to fill.  We also need helpers during the collection period, as we are a local drop off for collections from other churches.

BPUMC always ring the bells at PY Tops from 9a-4p on the day before Thanksgiving to collect money for Yates County Christmas.  Some of us start the holiday season by singing carols!
Please consider signing up for a time slot, or joining us.  This is the major fund raiser for Yates County Christmas.
