Prayer Baskets

Delivered by Judy Knutzen-Nerad & Tammy Delsart (3)-optNovember 18 - December 13

The Outreach Committee Ministry provides a complete Christmas for 3 families from Tank School, and we collect all the items needed from November 18 - December 13. The Outreach Committee hopes you can help with this important Mission! This Ministry provides a complete Christmas for 3 families from Tank School. Each family receives a fleece blanket (which we have already) for every family member, as well as a complete Christmas dinner. We have trees for each family in the back of the sanctuary with many tags identifying special gifts. They are labeled Baby Jesus family, Star family, and Angel family.

Please feel free to take as many tags as you'd like -­ just put the tag on an UNWRAPPED gift and return it to the church. The Youth Group will wrap all the gifts during their sleepover lock-in on Dec. 14.
