Dana and Helen Schillinger rang the bells for Yates County Christmas program.

Article by Joyce L. Wiedrich
Our BPUMC schedules itself to ring the bells to support Yates Christmas Program, formally known as Christmas for the Needy.  This program supports the days of giving to local families at the Armory and local churches where families choose new clothing outfits for their children, toys, books, hygiene items, gift certificates and other items that many people shop throughout the year to obtain.  What a great program!

We finished collecting locally filled boxes for Operation Christmas Child.  These boxes will go to children in America and around the world. 

Our sincere condolences to Elly Stempien and family with the recent passing of her mother.  They were very close, and she surely will be missed by all that knew her.

We thank Babs Steinert for her thoughtful message this past snowy Sunday while Pastor Sandi and Dave were traveling during Thanksgiving holidays.  She reminded us that there are many opportunities to serve around this Christmas season, and extra services and events at many local churches.
