1. Prison Fellowship
Sunday, December 2, after both services
Our church has a rich tradition of providing Christmas gifts to needy children. This year, we are embarking on a new venture with Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship® that serves incarcerated parents by providing a pathway for strengthening and restoring their relationships with their children and families. Angel Tree Christmas connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts given on the parent’s behalf. Volunteers purchase and deliver presents with a loving message from the incarcerated parent.
We’ll have Angel Tree tags available at the 8 and 10:15 services this Sunday and we hope you’ll join us in this new ministry. There are some details that will be slightly different than what we’ve done in the past, but we have an amazing team of enthusiastic volunteers who are all excited about this opportunity to serve.
We are also seeking volunteers to help organize a Christmas reception on Sunday, December 16, 2-4 p.m. where families will pick up the gifts. Want to help or have questions? Please contact Cathy Lewis at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Together for Kenya
This Christmas season, Christ and St. Luke’s has established the Gift of Love for Kenya project. Your gift of $60 will help these children to attend school and continue their education. Please let these precious ones know they are not forgotten–not by Christ or His people. You can pick up an ornament and send in your check starting on December 2, 2018 through early 2019. Individual ornaments are available in Lloyd Hall. The child on this ornament represents one of hundreds of children who need your help this Christmas! Contact Rudy & Kate Miller at email@example.com for more information.
