Join New Horizons and First United Methodist Church for the Annual Belgian Waffle Breakfast benefit on Saturday, Dec. 1.

The menu for the morning includes Dad’s Belgian waffles with an assortment of syrups and tasty toppings such as fruit and whipped topping. Sausage, juice and coffee will also be provided. Tickets are $6 in advance and $7 at the door; children under 5 are free. Reservations are preferred.

At Holy Trinity Lutheran Church one of the most meaningful ways for people to participate in serving opportunities is to volunteer during worship. For this, the church now has an online signup at www.signupgenius.com for volunteers to donate their time as greeters, welcome desk hosts, scripture readers or communion servers. It is a quick and easy process.
Holy Trinity is hoping to make the volunteer process as easy and efficient for all those willing to contribute their time and share themselves with the church. To begin you create a quick online profile, which includes your name, email address and a password. The email feature allows volunteers to receive email reminders and an iCalendar for scheduling. For more information, visit www.holytrinityankeny.org, or stop by at 517 S.W. Des Moines Ave.
