This year we are blessed with the opportunity to provide assistance to a local family with three sons. As in years past, there will be a tree in the Narthex, decorated with ornaments stating the gifts that the family would like to receive. It will be available starting with the December 1st service. If you would like to help, please select an ornament and purchase the gift. Please return the unwrapped gift, with the orna-ment attached, by late service on Sunday, December 15th for delivery to the family.
Thank you for your support of our Christmas Family Project. We hope you have a wonderful Christmas.
