Friday, December 2

We are excited about our upcoming ladies activity, “Wrapped with Care.”  We have designed this night to be about others and to prepare our hearts for the upcoming celebration of Christ’s birth! In addition to our outreach, the evening will include a light dinner, s’mores, hot cocoa and coffee. We will meet in the gymnasium fellowship hall at 6 pm; the cost will be $3 payable that evening when you arrive.

There will be several opportunities (listed below) for you to get involved in reaching out to others this Christmas season.
