Serving Christ in others is a key part of our St. Paul’s community throughout the year. During Advent, we will have an Advent Giving Tree in Sherrill Hall with opportunities to support our outreach ministries – to help pay for supplies for the dinners we have cooked for Pine Street Inn and Miracle Kitchen, for lunch ingredients and bus fare the week of B-SAFE summer camp, for equipment for Family Promise and for our annual support to our sister parish in Haiti. Please consider selecting one of the brightly colored envelopes – each labeled with an example of what the value of the suggested donation could support – and as you do so add an ornament to the tree (ornaments will be next to the tree). Return your donation to the church through the collection plate or to the church office by Christmas.
To support this Outreach fundraiser we’ll be hosting a bake sale during coffee hour on Sunday, December 6th – stop by to pick up baked goods for your holiday entertaining. You can also pre-order famous Lightcap pies for delivery later in the month. If you’d like to donate an item for the bake sale reach out to Judy Shaw at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will also have several popular items available for silent auction bidding December 6th and December 13th including:
- · a pair of Red Sox Tickets
- · Golf for 3 with Clint Heyd at Framingham Country Club
- · One week vacation rental in Orleans
- · One week vacation rental in Dennisport
- · Nest wireless smoke/carbon monoxide detector
Let’s decorate the tree as prepare to celebrate Christ’s birth! Remember, come to coffee hour December 6th for baked goods and the kick-off to the two-week silent auction!
