- Christmas Baskets: We will be collecting free will offerings for gift cards to be purchased for our Christmas baskets. These gift cards will be delivered to some members of our congregation who could use a little extra help at this special time of the year. A basket will be available next Sunday.
- Tree for Life: In the hallway across from Pastor Seifert’s office is a very special Christmas tree called the Tree for Life. The tree is decorated with star shaped ornaments which give gift suggestions for helping out the families we serve at the Pregnancy Counseling Center. Choose whichever ornament(s) you like, purchase the item and place in the collection box located in the conference room. Gift cards or checks can be dropped off in the church office. The volunteers at the PCC will combine your gifts of love with God’s Word to help meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the families who come to us for help. Have a blessed Christmas!
