The Social Concerns Ministry has its Giving Tree up in the church. We ask that you "undecorate" it - take a tag, purchase a gift for that person and return the gift with the tag. ALL GIFTS NEED TO BE RETURNED BY SUNDAY, DECEMBER 11TH TO THE CHURCH in order to be distributed in time for Christmas. Thank you for your participation in this most worthwhile program.
