Make the Holidays Brighter for a Child This Christmas
Sunday, November 13 through Sunday, November 27.
The Angel Tree – located outside the Sanctuary – is full of Christmas wishes from children in foster care waiting for someone like you to make their Christmas special. Every year StJLC partners with Upbring Foster Care to bless these children. You may notice some young adult wishes this year too. UpBring has a special program to help children transition as they age out of the foster care system and into adult living without the support of families. The program is called BeReal.
If you would like to be a part of this giving, choose a tag from the tree, sign the sheet by the name that corresponds with the name on the tag you have chosen.
Gifts need to be returned to the Church by November 28.
Thank you for joining us in this mission of spreading joy.
Sponsoring a foster child is fun and easy:
- Pick an Angel from the tree. Each Angel includes a first name, gender, age and short wish list.
- Purchase gifts. The suggested amount to spend per child is $40.
- No later than November 28, please bring the unwrapped gift to the Angel Tree with the Angel tag attached to the gift.
- Please pray for the children. Some of the Angel tags ask specifically for prayer, but we want to pray for all those that we are reaching through this program. Through Angel Tree, your simple act of love will give joy to children who might otherwise have little to celebrate. Pray that God will open your heart to their needs and that these children may live out the true meaning of Christmas.
