THE GIVING TREE RETURNS to support local families in need.  This year we are collecting gloves, scarves and hats for children and adults for the Family and Children's  Association.  Please take an ornament from the tree in the transept and return your unwrapped items.  Thank you.  God loves you!
 
CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT EXCHANGE: There is a tree in the sanctuary during Advent. We are asking each family to bring in an ornament, attach a small note with your name and phone number, and hang it on the tree (there will also be extra ornaments available for your use). On Christmas Eve you should take a different ornament from the tree, bring it home, and on Christmas Day (or another one of the twelve days of Christmas) call the family whose ornament you took to wish them Merry Christmas! This will only work if everyone participates – please join in!
