But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests."

-- Luke 2:10, 2:11, 2:14


 


 

 


 

Cheap Kiss Records


"Hello vinyl friends! If you've been to Cornerstone lately you've probably noticed that some changes are afoot. We are slowly but surely adding more inventory to our little corner of the store. Hopefully we'll be all set up in the next couple of weeks. We should have twice as much inventory as we currently have. Woo hoo!
 

  As you know, the American Heart Association has asked for donations of handmade little red hats for all the babies born during the month of February.  We began work on our project last month and continue to crochet and knit cute little red hats. We will work on these at home this month as it is such a busy time for all of us. In January we will be collecting all the hats we have finished and any red yarn you would like to donate. We ask that you bring in your hats and yarn  by January 6th so that we will have time to package our donation and deliver it to the hospital by January 15th.


In December we will focus on Family Shelter Service. This service was founded in 1976 and is dedicated to transforming lives by offering help and hope to those individuals and families affected by domestic violence. In 1978, the founders of this Service established a network of safe homes and in 1980 a 12-bed capacity safe shelter, Hanson House. Since that time the facilities provided by Family Shelter Service have continued to grow and multiply and provide a very important service to our community residents.
 

During the month of December, we will collect sweat pants and shirts, gloves, hats, mittens and scarves. Please place your donations in the box provided in our 

foyer. Let us know you made a donation, and you will receive a coupon for a free used book.


In addition to our monthly collections, we have small bins inside our door for items that SCARCE (http://www.scarce.org/) can use regularly. No need to wait for a specific month, just drop them off anytime. We will be collecting keys, safety pins, yarn, and crayons all year long. Making a difference doesn’t have to require lots of money or time. Every donation helps! I can’t wait to partner with you as we work together to meet the needs in our communities.
