Advent Giving OpportunitiesPosted: 10/30/2023
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.
All are invited to contact Sherry McKinley in the church office (387.0617 or email@example.com) by Sunday, December 10 to purchase a poinsettia in memory or celebration of a loved one. Poinsettias will be placed in the Chapel and Sanctuary. $35 each. Those who purchase a plant are welcome to bring them home to enjoy after the 6 pm Christmas Eve service. Orders may be placed by using the online form below or a printed form at the Connection Center.
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, antiperspirant, toothpaste/toothbrush, shampoo, lotion, body wash, white athletic socks or baby powder. Cash donations also accepted. Please make all donations by Sunday, December 17.
All Angel Tree names have been chosen this year! Be sure to act early next year so you can choose a child.
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. If you have questions, please contact the Angel Tree Coordinator, Ryan Castle (firstname.lastname@example.org or 225.773.4769).
