Mystery Friends Program
The purpose of this program is to build friendships that bridge the gap between generations. A younger member of the congregation is secretly paired to an older member and they become pen-pals for 6 weeks by using a secret code name. For 5 weeks, the pair writes letters to each other exchanging all sorts of interesting tidbits about themselves and on the 6th week they meet.
On the first week, Oct 28th, there will be two tables set up in the hall during coffee hour, one to receive letters for the Jr. members and the other where letters for the Sr Mystery Friend may be dropped off. After church the juniors check the Jr. Table to see if they got anything from their Sr. Mystery Friend, and the seniors check their table. It is usually easy to tell when a letter has their name on it because you can see their excited reaction (and I am not just talking about the youngest members!) If you are unable to attend church, you may leave your letter in a box in the new entrance in a box labelled for Jr or Sr Mystery friends.
Your Mystery Friend will be revealed to you on the 6th week at the SANTA CLAUS BREAKFAST (Sunday, Dec 2nd). At this time the Mystery Friends may exchange a little gift (not costing more than $5) and sit with each other during the breakfast. Sign-up sheets are on the bulletin board on the stage in Hall.
