Gift Bags for our Shut-Ins

St. John has 12 members that are shut-ins. We plan to make gift bags to deliver to them. If you could make cookies and bars without nuts and bring them to church on December 8th to the Fellowship Hall, they will be packed up and delivered to them.  If you make different cookies and/or bars put them in different bags for each kind. If you live near a shut-in and would be willing to deliver the bag to them that would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions, call Rae Carol Connolly at 952-460-2628.  Thank you.
