Did You Get Your WPC Bag?

The average reusable tote bag has a lifespan equal to that of more than 700 plastic bags. One person using reusable shopping bags over their lifetime could remove more than 20,000 plastic bags from damaging our environment. So imagine what a whole congregation might accomplish in caring for God’s creation by replacing plastic bags with a new, blue, Westminster reusable bag. Be sure to pick up your free bag in the narthex this Sunday!  

Recycle Your Christmas Lights

We are collecting old, broken Christmas lights for a recycling program until January 6. If the idea of all those lights ending up in a landfill does not feel right to you bring all your old, broken Christmas lights and deposit them in the collection bins. All proceeds will buy books, educational games, and puzzles for Toys for Tots. Questions? Contact Ann Hatfield.
