Time again for the “Giving Tree” !!! The tree will be placed in the Gathering Room the weekend of November 19 & 29, 2016 . Each year the Family Life and Social Justice Committee members and the families who receive the gifts are overwhelmed by your generosity. A reminder: If you take a tag, please write your name and phone number on the “sign-up sheet” located in the gathering room (This is so that we can contact you if there is no gift on that last date, for the tag for which you signed up for. Every year this happens that someone forgets to bring the gift in by that last date for collection on Sunday, so the sign-up sheet is very important and saves the day.) Also, very important, please place the gift tag on the gift so that we can get it to the right person/family. Deadline that the gifts are to be brought back to the church is Sunday-December 18, 2016 so that we can arrange to have the families pick their gifts up in a timely manner. Any questions, please call Sue Toufar at 715-659-4429 or Kay Derks at 715-659-4046.
