Mission Council is once again overwhelmed by the generosity of the congregation in response to our Giving Tree requests and Alternative Gift Giving donations. We collected $25 gift cards for every client of God’s Co-op Food Pantry; slippers, robes, sweatpants and gift cards for Homeless Solutions; diapers, wipes, pajamas and bath products for Interfaith Hospitality Network; underwear for the Bo Robinson Transitional Center, clothing and toys for two individual families in our community. In addition to these gifts we also received $2115 from our Alternative Gift Giving to share with various mission partners locally and around the globe.

We cannot thank congregation members enough for this outpouring of love at this time of the year. We have helped to make this a very happy and blessed Christmas for so many others and truly embodied the spirit of the season.
