Community Thanksgiving Service Today 3p.m. at Chestnut Street Baptist or you can livestream it at and their FB page. Sponsored by the Kittitas Valley Ministerial Association.

FISH will be coordinating efforts again this year to provide gifts for local families and seniors through our Community Christmas program. Last year, with the help of donors we were able to make Christmas a reality for 150 families and an additional 160 children and teens were provided Christmas presents during a secondary program for those who missed the deadline for adoption. If you'd like to adopt a family or senior this year please email us at

FISH News: Thank you for sharing your blessings with FISH. Your generosity makes a difference in the lives of all who rely on FISH for groceries and meals. In 2021 FISH will be celebrating its 50th anniversary as the resource for food for any Kittitas County resident who is hungry and needs help. It will be a year of reflection on our beginning and excitement for the future as we move toward the realization of a home of our own at last. From the beginning, FISH has been a community partner working with the churches initially and through the years moving to partnerships with the healthcare community, academia and other social services agencies. The vision for our new building is to expand the outreach of our partners to become a one-stop-shop fop anyone who needs help. You will hear more about that throughout next year.

Offering Envelopes: The 2021 offering envelopes are available in the fellowship hall. Stop by and pick yours up Sunday mornings if you attend service, or if you stop by the church to drop off your offering or for some other reason during the week. These are getting out earlier than normal to allow people more time to pick them up as you may not get to the church as often. Christine can help find yours when she is working during the week. For those that are not picked up by the end of the year they will be mailed out. If you have any questions let the church office know or contact James Stolte.

Cold Weather Shelter is looking for volunteers. The shelter will be at Grace Episcopal Church. If you are interested in signing up please, email them at
