This Christmas season, we are again partnering with SAFE’s Sponsor a Family program. SAFE is a merger of Austin’s Children Shelter and SafePlace, a non-profit organization providing safety and counseling for families affected by domestic violence and abuse. Paper angels will be hanging from the garland in the Children’s Room hallway, holding the personal wishes of individuals living in SafePlace transitional housing or those served through its counseling program.
To participate, simply take an angel shopping with you and purchase the item listed on the back (suggested spend is $25-$50 per angel). Bring your unwrapped gift to the Sunday School’s gift-wrapping, hymn-and-carol-singing, lunch-and-Christmas-cookie-party on Sunday, December 16, immediately following the services!
First Church, Austin will have a resource table at this event.
