Angel Tree starts this Sunday, November 24th

Beginning Sunday, November 24th, there will be an Angel Tree located in the Narthex!  This is a great way to make the Christmas season special for a local child in need.  The tree will have stockings on it with the names of children, their ages and gift ideas (although you do not have to get exactly what is on their list).  The children we can help have all been selected by the Department of Human Services due to their families’ low income status and the fact that they receive assistance from the Department of Social Services.  Each stocking will have a number on it which correlates to a number on the master list near the tree.  We have color coded the list in family groups so you know which children live in the same household.  Once you have selected a child, write your name and phone number on the master list next to your child’s name and stocking number.  Then, go shopping and please spend at least $25 on the gifts you choose.  Gifts do not need to be wrapped or fit into the stocking, but if you purchase more than one item, each child’s gifts must be bundled together in a bag or box.  The name of your Angel Tree child must be clearly written on the gifts.  Do NOT write your name on the gifts as they are given anonymously.  Please bring your gifts to the church no later than December 15th.  When you return the gifts, please take the angel ornament  with your child’s name on it so you can remember them and pray for them this Christmas season!  If you have any questions, please speak with Diane Hay
