Giving Tree 2014
Through December 14th we will be collecting for the Giving Tree. The funds raised will be used to help area families who are in need this holiday season. In previous years you have been very generous with your support and we hope that you will consider helping once again with this worthy cause.
Donations can be placed in the collection plate in an envelope designated for the Giving Tree or they can be given to
Jocelyn Barie. Please use one of the envelopes in your pew and write “Giving Tree” on the outside.
Thank you in advance for your help!!
The Mission Committee is collecting new mittens/gloves, scarves, hats, ear muffs, etc. They can be placed on the tree in the Fellowship Hall and they will be delivered to the Salvation Army, a local school, or another agency for distribution.
We have begun decorating our sanctuary for Advent and Christmas. As we have done for several years we will be ordering poinsettia plants. This year the cost will be $7.50 per plant.
Our Worship Committee will be arranging the plants and they will be on display in the sanctuary during the remainder of Advent. The plants may be taken home or given to a shut-in after the Christmas Eve service.
