There are a number of ways you can participate in Advent at First during the Christmas season. Below are just a few examples but more crop up each day. If you would like additional information on how to get involved, please contact Laura Shaw.
Members are invited to contact Sherry McKinley
in the church office (225.387.0617) to purchase a poinsettia in memory or celebration of a loved one. Poinsettias will be placed in the Chapel and Sanctuary during Advent. $35 each.
Christmas Bags for Malachi Dads
Items are being collected for Christmas bags to be distributed to the Malachi Dads (prisoners) at Angola Penitentiary. Please consider making a donation and dropping it off at the Connection Center: soap, anti-perspirant, toothpaste/toothbrush, shampoo, lotion, body wash, white athletic socks or baby powder. Cash donations also accepted.
Please stop by the Reception Room to receive the name of a child whose parent is incarcerated. You can bless them with Angel Tree gifts on behalf of their parent this Christmas. Angels are available November 17 and December 1. Coordinator is Cheryl Brodnax, 678.2448.
Angel Tree Angels have all been assigned. Please check back with us next year.
