Sunday, December 15 – “Just One Thing” day. Scott has challenged us to bring double or triple what you have been bringing. TBW donated a total of 97 lbs of food to the Valley View Community Food Bank for the month of November. That brings our total since June to 535 lbs of food! That is amazing. Please keep bringing your one thing every month!

Sunday, December 15 – around 12:30 pm – Christmas Caroling to TBW “shut-ins” and various others. The Adventure Crew and the ACFA group invites anyone who would like to join us in caroling to those members and friends of TBW that we don’t get to see very often. We will meet at Barro’s pizza (51st & Bell) at 12:30 pm to work out a game plan. Bring your small percussion (not too loud or obnoxious), voices and joy as we spread a little Christmas cheer around the valley. If you have anyone in mind who you think would love to have a visit, please let Kevin, Robyn, or Brian know so we can work them into the rounds.
