Shoebox Christmas Mission
I know we really don’t want to hear it, but Christmas shopping is just
around the corner. Soon we will be gathering items to fill the shoeboxes
for the children in other countries. Most of us have helped with this
project in past years. Remember that we need items such as toothbrushes,
toothpaste, socks, small toys, coloring books, crayons, lotions, gum and
such. We cannot use homemade food products or perishables. The boxes
are packed for girls and for boys. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
There will be a container in the Fellowship Hall labeled for Christmas
shoeboxes. More details will be given in the near future. As always, the
Mission Outreach Committee of all ages appreciates your support! So
why not start now by picking up items as you are out shopping.
T.O.P.S. Take Off Pounds Sensibly
Vickie Leach would like to introduce you to a
Weight-Loss Support system called TOPS (Take
Off Pounds Sensibly). This is not another weight
loss diet. TOPS is the short name for TOPS Club
Inc. - an original, nonprofit, noncommercial
network of weight-loss support groups, founded in
Our mission is to support our members as they take off and keep off
pounds. Our chapter meets in the Fellowship Hall at Turin Baptist
Church on Wednesday mornings at 10:30. We weigh in privately and at
11:00 we start our weekly program. These programs include ideas on how
to eat more healthy and sensibly, start losing weight, how to continue with
these life-style changes, exercises, etc. Everyone participates with
information, ideas, and ways they have found that work or don’t work for
them. It’s sharing and caring about each other.
Come join us! Sit in and just listen or take part and decide for yourself just
how important this group could be for you. We look forward to seeing
you. Please tell your friends and neighbors and bring them with you. Let’s
have some fun as we work to reach our goals together!
