The goal is to help children grow in faith, and become familiar with the Bible through a variety of methods, including storytelling and drama, music, video, games, science, cooking and art.

The Giving Tree

The Giving TreeThe Giving Trees are now in the Parlor. You have the opportunity to choose tags from several agencies in order to purchase gifts for both children and adults. The tags are marked with the name or initials of the agency.

Please select tags and put your name on the sign-out sheet. Please read the note on the tag to see which kind you have chosen.

  • All gifts going to PADS should be UNWRAPPED, but with the tag firmly attached
  • All gifts for Marcy Newberry and Head Start should be wrapped.
  • Child Serv gifts should be unwrapped.

Please don’t wrap gifts marked “unwrapped” or volunteers will have to unwrap them before giving them to the agency.

The gifts for all the agencies other than PADS should be returned with the tags firmly attached no later than noon on Sunday, December 5. Gifts for PADS will continue to be collected into December.

The Children and Family Ministries Work Area and the Church and Society Work Area sponsor the Giving Tree project. Over 300 gifts go to needy children, youth, and adults in our township and across the Northern Illinois Conference. We hope that you will be able to help.

Thank you!
