Each Advent, a Christmas tree is erected in the church narthex with angel tags stating gift wishes from local children and their families. CLC members have the opportunity to purchase these items and share their blessings.
Watch for the tree to be set up on the first Sunday in Advent 2014. It will contain “angel tags” describing the age, gender and a ”gift wish” for children and their parents who are referred by Habitat for Humanity, the YDA (families that utilize the Ecumenical Food Pantry we support), families that have approached the church directly and for the first time, the women who live in the Penates Women’s Shelter for whom we are collecting toiletries. Each tag will state if the gift should be wrapped or not and it is suggested that a gift receipt accompany each gift.
