  • Stuffing or Dressing Mix
  • Canned Yams or Sweet Potatoes

OR Grocery Gift Cards

Unwrapped toys for any age range from 1 month to 18 years.

Many of our teens are often forgotten.
$20 Gift certificates to stores, movie theaters, or juice/yogurt shops in the area help a teen know that their community cares.

Please bring non-perishable gifts and leave them on the coffee cart in the Narthex.
*Spiral hams need to be placed in the refrigerator in the kitchen.
Please ask in the office if you need help on a week day. Office hours are 9-3pm Monday through Thursday.

And/or bring donations on Sunday, Dec 19, after the 8 a.m. service and before and after the 10 a.m. service.
