WELCA

Fair Trade
Start the New Year off Right — with Fair Trade Products!
Visit the Fair Trade table in the Pioneer Chapel on Sunday, January 2nd following the service. Full inventory is available including new teas: Jasmine Green and Turmeric Ginger, a new Extreme dark chocolate bar: Total Eclipse – 92% cacoa; and all your usual favorites. Remember that the congregation drinks Fair Trade Coffee at coffee hour, and WELCA appreciates your donations.

WELCA Fair Trade Coffee and Chocolate
Sometimes a good cup of coffee or a piece of fair trade chocolate is just what the doctor ordered. If you are out of a product essential for you, call or email Ann Tohlen to figure out a drop off or delivery plan. This is a project of our Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (WELCA). Also, remember that we provide the coffee for the weekly coffee hour following Sunday service. Your donations are always appreciated! For more information, contact Lucy Knopf.

Support WELCA’S Red Wagon Project
WELCA is continuing to support the the PCC Rock Creek Panther Pantry. The PCC staff and students established food pantries on all four campuses. PCC does partner with the Oregon Food Bank, but still needs some of the following items: Rice, Cereal, Peanut Butter, Tuna, Jam, Canned Proteins and Hygiene Products (toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant, conditioner), as well as basic school supplies like pencils, pens and notebooks. If you are too busy to go shopping, you can always write out a check instead — please be sure that you include “PCC Food Pantry” on the memo. Items are collected all month and brought forth on the first Sunday of each month.

WELCA Card Ministry
Join WELCA in sending encouraging cards to folks! When members of our church family are experiencing a life event such as an illness or a special anniversary, a WELCA volunteer sends a card to acknowledge and encourage. Cards and stamps are provided. This is a great way to stay in touch and brighten the days of some of our homebound (or out-of-town) members. To volunteer, please reach out to Ann Tohlen. Thanks for being willing to share your time and talent with your church family.
