December 2, 2017 - During the seasons of Advent and Christmas, we prepare our hearts for the miraculous gift of Christ. Having received of this gift; we hope to share God's love with others.
The Giving Trees are up! Only a few ornaments are left, decorating the trees in Fellowship Hall. the Narthex and the Chapel Narthex. On each ornament you will find the Christmas wishes of a girl or boy in our area whose family needs our help this season.
The White Gift Mission Team asks the members and friends of First Church to take an ornament from the Giving Trees (or multiple ornaments, if you are able). prayerfully consider the child and his/her wishes. and purchase a gift (or gifts) requested. You may also team up with a friend or another family to sponsor the child (children).
We ask that you fulfill at least one of the wishes. and it might not be the first wish. Bring gifts to the Christmas Pageant and Worship Service on Sunday. Dec. 10; make arrangements to bring early if you can't make the Dec. 10 service. These gifts will be our symbolic offerings to the Christ child.
The gifts will be collected by the appropriate agencies, which we are sponsoring this year, and delivered to their
recipients the following week.
