COMMUNITY MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES
Lunch Buddies: Clarksville Elementary School needs lunch buddies. For more information or to sign up, contact the School Counselor at 374-8668.
Lake Country Community Garden(LCCG): On Friday, Nov. 22nd, a total 54 pounds of broccoli, cauliflower, turnips and mixed greens were picked. Colder temperatures are slowing down the growth of things in the garden but not the enthusiasm of the pickers. Because of the cold front moving in this weekend, we have not yet scheduled the date of the next picking.
Thanksgiving Baskets: Praise God! Fifteen Thanksgiving baskets have been distributed to local families for the holiday. Thanks to all for the generous food donations.
UMC Market: Here's an innovative way to provide funds to Jamieson through your on-line shopping: Register at http://www.umcmarket.org/ A percentage of your purchases at hundreds of on-line stores will go to our church, which is listed as Clarksville Jamieson Memorial if you connect through this site.

All are welcome.
A nursery is available downstairs from the sanctuary for infants and toddlers during 9:30 am service and Sunday School, staffed by our Nursery Director, Jan Turner, and an adult or youth volunteer.
