Christmas Blessings
Angel Tree

Our Angel Tree will be displayed in the Narthex on Sunday, November 7. You can choose an Angel and purchase the gift wishes for a foster child in our community. The Foster Care Team will organize the gifts for distribution in early December. We are asking that all deliveries be made by Sunday November 28 so we can organize the gifts.
