Community Partners Caring Tree
Every Christmas the Community Partners (formerly Social Ministry) Teamplaces a tree in the Narthex with ornaments representing the various organizations we support. Each ornament lists the wishes and needs of the individuals represented by each organization along with any special instructions for the gift. If you wish to be involved with this giving opportunity, please select an ornament(s) and follow its instructions. Gifts should be returned to the church by Tues., Dec. 5.
This year the following organizations are represented:
Yellow Stars = Lutheran Child and Family Services
Round Red Ornaments = A child from Jehovah’s School, Good Shepard Christian Academy
Christmas Trees = PADS (Local Homeless Shelter Sites)
Angels = Meadows (Residential home in Rolling Meadows for adults with moderate disabilities)
Snowmen = Bethesda Lutheran Communities (Residential homes for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities)
Your support & generosity are greatly appreciated and truly blesses those in need.
