Christmas Child Kickoff
Sunday, November 10th
The Christmas Child Ministry is getting started again!! Christmas Child is Timberlake’s version of an angel tree. The inspiration for the program came from Matthew 2:11, in which the wise men took three gifts to baby Jesus.
Eleven local schools, Harvest Outreach, and the Daily Bread are all gathering information on local children in need. At the end of October all of this information is put onto cards that have children’s sizes, toy wishes, and urgently needed items.
Sunday, November 10th
Kickoff, cards available in the Narthex

If you have questions or would like to volunteer in these areas, I would love to speak with you about it! You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you at the tables!
