Helping those in need – pick up your angel card – then come help wrap gifts on Sun., Dec 11!

This Christmas season, our church is again partnering with
SafePlace’s Sponsor a Family program to fill some
needs and wishes. SafePlace is an organization
providing safety and counseling for families affected by
domestic violence and abuse. In the coming weeks, our
Sunday School teachers will be discussing how we can
use a metaphysical approach to healing domestic
violence and abuse, gift-giving and other subjects
pertaining to our Christmas event.

Starting on Wednesday, November 23, angel cards,
containing the personal need or wish of an individual in
the SafePlace program, will be hanging from the garland
in the hallway. Simply take an angel shopping with
you and purchase something from the list (suggested
spend is $25-$50 per angel).

Bring your unwrapped gift to the Sunday School for
storage (keep the angel with the gift!). Then join us on
Sunday, December 11
, immediately following church

services, to wrap gifts, sing hymns and carols and
enjoy lunch and Christmas cookies!

We look forward to an outpouring of love to our
community!
