Now that summer’s gone, here comes Fall and Winter. Enjoy the cool weather before the frosty cold arrives!

Our annual Angel Wreath will be hung on the first of December. This important mission services the children from financially challenged families in our local area. Thanks to Janice Grassia for coordinating this event.

Each angel will have a name and item the specific child has requested. Each child will have 2 angels: 1 item is a clothing need and 1 item will be for a toy or fun item.

Please take one Angel, purchase and wrap the item, being sure to include the Angel as a name tag. Items can be returned to the church by December 9th. Your support will help to make this Holiday Season special for all children.
