.

How does this work? Each woman bakes several dozen of one kind of cookie. A week or so before Christmas we'll choose a time to meet at the church to exchange with one another. Anyone who would like to take part please contact Ellen Dunbar at 888-3998. Once we know how many are interested we'll know how many dozen cookies each one should bake. In the past, we've bagged one dozen for each person participating; however, if more than 10 participate, it is probably better to share a half dozen. We want this to be fun and not a burden. This gives us a variety of cookies to share with our friends and family without each one having to bake so many different kinds. It’s fun and everyone gets lots of yummy cookies to share!

Women’s Retreat Mark Your Calendars! February 1st and 2nd at the Lakeside Lodge (Best Western) in Lakeside. Registration and details coming soon. For details on women’s ministries see www.littlestonechurch.org.

2012 Parsonage Fund Giving

GOAL: $80,000 PLEDGES PAYMENTS RECEIVED Current as of 12/6/12


PARSONAGE PLEDGE FORM Little Stone Church - Serving the Lord since 1902 We feel that God has given us a special opportunity to purchase property immediately adjacent to our church. For now, it will be used as a Parsonage for our Youth Pastor. Later, it gives us the option of expanding our facility. We will sell the original Parsonage and apply those funds to the purchase price of this new property. The difference between the two is about $80,000 and that is our GOAL. We would love to have you be a part of this expansion of our ministry – please pray!
