Angel Tree and Whiz Kids Cards for Neighborhood Services Organization

What an awesome church we have!! The Mission Committee is very thankful to have the support of our church members and to know you care about the mission work of our church. Because of you, we were able to provide two gifts to each mother and each child that live in Martha’s House and Gatewood and also gift cards to the Whiz Kids. You made many families and children have a much nicer Christmas. Thanks again!!

CLEANING OUT YOUR CLOSETS?????

It’s cold outside!!    Look in your closets and see if you have any gently used coats of any size from 0-4X that you no longer wear. Along with the coats, you might have some hats or gloves or scarfs.   We have recently been in touch with two organizations that deliver these items to families in urgent need.  One is Ice Angels—this organization delivers clothing and food to the homeless people in downtown Oklahoma City.  Their e-mail is mosaicokc@org/ice-angels.   Susan Humphrey helps with this program.

The second is CARE.   Care Center is the only resource center in Oklahoma that deals with child abuse.   Education is the key to ending child abuse and they have several programs to help these families end abuse.   Many are without food and clothing so they except these items.

We will take the children’s coats we collect to help them warm their clients.    Their e-mail is carecenter-okc.org/about/

Angel Tree Project

Angel Tree for families at Neighborhood Services
and Whiz Kids

 

Select a name from the angel tree that is located in the Narthex.

Please sign your name on the clipboard by the name of the mom or child that you have selected.  This lets the mission committee know who has the names and that all names have been selected.

Bring the gifts back to the church WRAPPED by December 15th and have the angel tag attached to each gift.

 Also $20 Walmart gift cards to purchase for children in the Whiz Kids program are available by the Angel Tree.   This is a tutoring program for school children that need a little extra help—and love.   Please return these cards by December 8th.

 The mission committee appreciates all the support you have shown the mothers and children of our mission projects.  You have given many children a smile and they have a much nicer Christmas.  God bless you!!

 

Advent Day of Prayer

 

The Spiritual Formation Committee invites the congregation to The Advent Day of Prayer, which will be held Friday, November 29, from 6:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. Plan to spend some quiet time with God as we wait the coming of the Christ child. Take time out of the busyness of the season to remember the one whose birth we celebrate.
