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 10, immediately following the services!
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!
