give a gift to a child in need!
This is our opportunity to reach families and children in our community. All families are local and are our neighbors. We have 7 families this year in the 'Adopt a Family' program and over 100 children in Angel Tree. Their needs and wishes are on tags on the Christmas Tree in our church hallway in our lobby.
HOW TO BE A PART OF OUR SALVATION ARMY ANGEL TREE:
STEP 1: Take a tag you have selected. Each tag has three parts. The top section has the Salvation Army family with number. The middle section may have the name of the person, information, the suggested gift idea and the family number. The small bottom section may have a family / ID number. Do not separate any part of the tag/leave whole.
STEP 2: You can purchase the suggested gift, add to it or substitute another age appropriate item (no guns please). All Angel Tree tags are one of a kind, It is the only tag for that child.
STEP 3: Return the gift unwrapped (except for items like tissue/paper plates, household items). The tag should be firmly attached to the gift. On the (Adopt a Family) tag, personal items like clothing and toys should have the person's name and family ID number attached. All gifts are given anonymously, but you may use first names only if you like. Please add a card if you like, using only your first names.
STEP 4: All unwrapped gifts should be returned to church on or before Sunday night, December 13th. Gift bags are recommended.
STEP 5: Gifts will be distributed by the Salvation Army. If you have any questions, please contact the church office at [email protected]
Receive a special blessing from the Lord, participate with an open heart; please pray for the families and the children.
