MARY’S PLACE BURIEN FAMILY SHELTER
JK KIDS CHRISTMAS MISSION INITIATIVE
This Year, JK Kids will be donating items to Mary’s Place Burien Family Shelter for their Christmas mission emphasis. We recently heard that the shelter is in urgent need of specific items right now due to the unusually high number of infants & children the shelter is housing. Recognizing this need, we will be collecting items at the Children’s Ministry table in the Atrium starting this Sunday. Items needed are: Diapers sizes 4, 5, 6; toothbrushes, toothpaste, bar soap, body wash, socks (all sizes) and lotions. Thank you for your generosity in responding to this immediate need. We will share more about our Christmas wish list for the shelter as it gets closer to December.

TRUNK OR TREAT IS COMING
YOUR HELP IS NEEDED | SIGN UP TODAY
Every October 31, we welcome several hundred children from our neighborhood to our church parking lot for our Trunk or Treat event. We pass out candy, prizes and treats in an environment that is safe and fun. We can use your help in several ways:
Prayer: Pray for this event to be a place where Jesus’ love is felt through our Mission of reaching out.
Volunteer: Trunk or Treat takes about 2 hours of your time and is a really easy event to help at. If you would like to decorate your car (which is not a requirement), ideas are easily found online. We also have a variety of other needs for the night to help make this event a success. Sign-ups will be in the Atrium.
Donate: Candy, prizes and treats (in stores now with sales and special offers). Please pick up a few bags for the collection bins which will be in the church Atrium.
