“Pounding” the Nichols Family
Andover is participating in a great tradition of pounding the new pastoral family.  What is pounding you ask?  Simply stocking the shelves with a “pound” of sugar, flour and other staple items needed to set up the home. Our SPRC is coordinating this event.
If you want to participate and didn’t have a chance to sign up, these are the items that are still available:
Coffee, tea
Pasta (reg. and gluten free spaghetti, macaroni)
Popcorn (bagged)
Rice (brown, white)
Persil laundry detergent
Dishwasher detergent pods

For those who plan to donate items, please bring them to church this Sunday (June 19) in order to have them included in the delivery to the parsonage (on or about June 21).

Or, if you prefer to make a personal donation (ex: gift card), you may mail it directly to following address: (after June 24th.)
Rev Jim & Joy Nichols
960 Deer Crossing Way
Lexington KY  40509
Thanks to everyone who is helping with this welcoming gesture.
