From November 29- December 20, we will be colecting L/XL underwear, white tee-shirts, socks, and travel-size toiletries. Please drop off these gifts in the marked boxes in the center lobby or at Coffee Hour. Gifts will be distributed at the Emmanuel Christmas Eve lunch on December 24.
SMALL FRY HOLIDAY TOY DRIVE AND CELEBRATION
Small Fry, one of our mercy partners, is collecting Christmas gifts to give to the children that they serve. Please visit the Liberti Connect table Nov 29TH during coffee hour to pick up one of their wish lists, and then bring your wrapped gifts to church on Dec 13. Then join us Saturday, December 19 from 11:00 AM - 2:00 PM, at the Marion Anderson Center (17th & Fitzwater) as we hand out the presents we collected, and showcase a Christmas-themed cooking class!
