The St. John United Church of Christ bell choir started off a very special service yesterday morning. The church's youth group delivered to the altar 187 coats, and adults brought forth gloves and mittens to be given to Community Action to be passed on to local children who need  winter clothing. The money for the purchases came from the church's Thanksgiving Day offering.
