HOC Adopt-a-family: A single mom and 4 children are chosen for our church to share.  Their requests are posted in the hallway. There is a boy 13, girl 11, boy 10 and girl 3. Take the note as your reminder and sign your name on the line so we know that gift is covered. 

When you purchase the item, do not wrap it! You may place it in a box however, to make wrapping easier.  The mother wants to wrap the gifts herself. Just attach a gift tag with the child’s name on it to the gift (or box).  Return all items to the church by Dec. 17.  Or you may donate $$ for Margaret to purchase items. If more $$ are donated than needed for this family, a single person will be adopted.

They would appreciate the following used items: twin bed & sheets; family, comedy, adventure DVD movies; Christmas music CDs; books for the children; dinner plates and glasses; a toaster; used clothing for children – sizes are on the poster.



    God loves you, and you, and you, ….                



Life is a journey.  Let faith be your guide.



Being a Christian doesn’t mean you won’t fall.  It means Jesus will catch you when you do.
