RE News: Sun Dec 10

Lifespan Religious Education

The halls have been decked! Thank you Laura Goodspeed for leading the way and to all those who made crafts to hang. Now it's time to decorate the tree...with mittens, gloves, hats, and scarves that will be donated to local shelters. Please bring items this Sun, as we kickoff the Mitten Tree during the Wonder Box Story. As you give, so shall you receive. If you have a need during this holiday season, please let me know so we can support your family. At times we give to others and in other moments we receive. Either way, it is the exchange that holds the meaning of the season.
