 Christmas Giving Tree

This year the Christmas Giving Tree will have ornaments for gifts for John George Home (37 Men) and  the Jackson Friendly Shelter (44 Women).  Take an ornament and buy the gift listed. Please bring the gift back to church wrapped if possible and attach the ornament so that they know who the gift is for by December 16th.  If you don’t want to shop you can put a donation in the offering and mark it “Christmas Giving Tree”.

Help to make Christmas special for   others this year!
