MISSION OPPORTUNITIES
 
Trees of Love

During Advent this year, which begins Sunday, December 2, we will be sharing Christ’s love with our neighbors through our Trees of Love ministry.  This year, however, those trees will look differently than they have in previous years.  We will be looking to make an impact locally, regionally, and internationally.  Look for three decorated trees near the Heritage Center:

TREE OF HOPE
Our Sister’s House has women and children residing there over the holidays.  Help make Christmas special for them by taking an ornament and returning the item listed on the reverse.  Let’s bring some hope to our neighbors who need our help the most. 
 
TREE OF LIFE
Let’s continue to remember and support those rebuilding their lives in eastern NC after Hurricane Florence.  Ornaments on this tree list one or more items included in a flood/cleaning bucket.  Take an ornament from the tree and return the item(s) listed on the reserve side.  The Missions Team will assemble full Flood Buckets with these donations.
 
TREE OF JOY
Place toboggans, gloves or mittens for infants, children, and youth on or under this tree.  These will be made available next summer to those of you who are packing AGAPE Christmas boxes for our brothers and sisters in Armenia, and these items are almost impossible to find.

Monetary donations are always welcome for all these ministries.  Make checks payable to FSUMC with “Trees of Love” in the memo-line.  Questions?  Please contact the church office.

 
Angel Tree Delivery
Beginning December 2, volunteers are needed to deliver gifts to children of parents who are incarcerated.  Printed directions will be provided with each bag of gifts.  Please email Margaret_blackwell@yahoo.com or call 227.6263 for details.  Thank you for your help in making Christmas special for these families.
