In Advent we respond to our God’s call to love our neighbors.
Gifts with a Mission
Alternative Gifts are gifts with a mission. The Mission Committee offers Alternative Gifts as a way to share and support the work of our partners in mission. Honor a friend by making a donation on his or her behalf to the group of your choice. You will receive a greeting card that explains the work your gift supports. Stop by the Alternative Gifts table during Fellowship through Sunday, December 17.
Decorate the Health for Haiti Christmas Tree
Help decorate our Christmas tree in the Assembly Room with items for Friends for Health in Haiti. Each day in rural northeast Haiti a clinic staff of 7 consults with 100 patients.
Items needed for the clinic include the following:
- muscle rub,
- antibiotic cream,
- ACE bandages,
- wooden tongue depressors,
- non-latex gloves,
- hand lotion,
- small cakes of soap,
- packaged toothbrushes,
- small children’s toys (matchbox cars, jump ropes, etc.),
- and hair ribbons.
Place donations on or under the Christmas tree. These will be sent with the 2018 Presbytery Mission trip to Haiti.
