It will take about two hours to complete the preparation for Advent. We'll provide pizza and snacks for lunch.

Thanksgiving Basket Food Drive. It's the season for giving thanks! November has arrived and so has the Faith Presbyterian Thanksgiving Basket Food Drive. We need your help to make sure this Thanksgiving is a happy and blessed event for needy families in Tallahassee. We will deliver baskets to more than 40 families -- a delicious Thanksgiving Dinner with all the trimmings. Please drop off the following canned goods and nonperishable items: self-rising cornmeal, sugar, cranberry sauce, gravy packets, mashed potatoes, green beans, stuffing, yams/sweet potatoes, corn, peas, and other veggies. Bags should be filled and dropped off by Sunday, November 23. Items should be placed in one of the four drop-off locations: by the kitchen, the hallway next to the sanctuary, the sanctuary entrance, and in the main church office. Monetary donations are also needed to help pay for fresh greens, apples, dinner rolls, pumpkin pies, and beautifully cooked turkeys. We will be collecting $2 for turkeys after each service in November. Please make checks payable to Faith, write "Thanksgiving Baskets" in the memo line, and drop checks off in the church office.
We are also looking for volunteers to assemble and deliver the baskets on the morning of Tuesday, November 26. If you are available to help, please contact Gina M. Wurst Yeager, 765-0796, email@example.com, or Alison Denny, 443-2248, firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you in advance for all your support and may this be a blessed season!
