The Youth Group is continuing to collect donations for Alex Smith and Family. Alex is a leukemia patient, 13 years old, who lives in Rockland. The Youth Group is trying to help Alex and his family by collecting donations to help them offset some expenses like driving back and forth to the hospital. We would also like to purchase a Christmas gift for Alex and his 3 siblings. Alex should be receiving his bone marrow transplant in January.
If you would like to help or have any questions, please call Susan Kavka @ 781-826-8906.
Our Group is currently working on plans to meet with other Youth Groups in the area,
a bowling night and possibly attending a District Youth Conference.

Prudential has worked out a procedure for canceling church due to heavy snow storms. We decided that members should call Channing Church and we will put the message that church has been cancelled on our answering service (we thought this would work better than one or two people trying to call everyone, & maybe missing notifying someone). If the answering service message does not say church has been cancelled we will still have church that Sunday. The decision to cancel will be made by Cheryl & Kareen, Prudential Co-Chairs, & will be made considering all factors involved such as; how bad the snow is, if anyone is available to shovel the church walks, if plows have cleared the streets & Ike’s Way leaving room to park cars, if the minister or lay led person is still able to make it to the church, to be in the pulpit for the service, if there is no power failure, etc. If you are not sure if there is church call Channing 781-878-0650 to check.
