Thank You for the Christmas Gifts

 

CarolingThe Outreach Committee thanks the congregation for their support of their many December projects.

On December 3, 2017 five elves traveled to the Selinsgrove Center to once again share stories, songs and gifts with the fourteen ladies of CM-6 and their caregivers. It was a very special afternoon for the ladies and our elves. Heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the congregation for their generous donations of money, body wash and pudding to fill in with the gifting. We were blessed to receive more from the ladies and their caregivers than we gave.

With assistance from congregation members the residents of the Danville State Hospital received everything from batteries to packages of socks, hats, gloves, watches and wallets. These many and varied items were used where they were most needed. A member of Redeemer Lutheran Church graciously delivered our donations to the hospital with those of Redeemer. The committee thanks all who participated in this outreach.

On December 10, 2017 five carloads of carolers visited with our Special Concern folks and others. Thank you Bernadette Jones for making soup for our luncheon that day. To the folks, particularly our young people, who sang carols and delivered cookies thank you for taking time from your busy schedules to bring cheer to others.

We are certain Jacob Schreckengast enjoyed the many cards congregation members signed just in time to reach him in Japan this Christmas. Thank you for making a difference in his first Christmas away from home and family.

Thank you to all the members of the congregation, who also took Christmas cards from our trees in the Narthex, added a cheery message and mailed them to our Special Concerns folks and others we do not see as often as we would like.

These gestures of Christmas spirit given by our congregation were sure to comfort the individuals receiving them in Christ’s name.
