The Saint Nicholas Giving Tree
My dearest Young People;
Seeing that Christmas is a time for giving, and St. Nicholas brought so many gifts to the poor and needy children, I wanted to continue that beautiful tradition here in our church. Let's gather as many gifts as we can for the needy children of our area. This Sunday, after your Sunday School program or next Friday following Greek School, Youth Dance., or Mommy and Me, go down to the Bulletin Board in the Foyer and "pick a card" off the St. Nicholas Giving Tree. Follow the instructions and return your gift and place it under the Christmas tree in the Church on or by Sunday, December 16th. The gifts will be distributed to the needy children of our area through several different programs.
It will be the event this Christmas that makes "giving better than receiving" as we prepare for God's gift of Christ into our lives and hearts. Everyone in the Community is welcome to participate.
Here's how the program works:
Please go out and buy a new toy worth about $15.00 to $20.00 for a boy or a girl Wrap the toy and stick the label that are available in the Church foyer. (Be sure to mark the label)
Bring the toy to church with you on Sunday and place it under the Christmas tree.
All toys need to be under the tree on or by Sunday, December 16, 2018
