News & Events for November

Family to Family Christmas 2018

Thank you for your overwhelming support of the Family to Family Christmas ministry. A few updates:

  • PLEASE make sure you have returned the bottom portion of the card for your family. We are missing 15 slips from the bottom of the cards that were taken. It is important for us to track who has been sponsored so that no one is left out. You can leave the slip in the offertory basket, drop it off in the office or mail chute, or call Ann with the information. Thank you!
  • Reach out and connect with your family or senior before Nov. 12 to introduce yourself.
  • If you can’t reach your family or senior, be persistent, try try again! Also, you can contact a coordinator listed on your card for assistance.
