The Advent Giving Trees

For the Giving Trees this year we decided to focus on one main project. We will putting together Go Bags for foster children. There will also be the Winter Gear tree as well in the Chalice entry.

What are Go Bags?
Many times when children are taken from their homes, circumstances prevent them from taking any of their belongings with them. A Go Bag is a bag filled with a small number of items they need and to make them feel a bit of comfort.

What does a Go Bag contain:
Standard pillow and pillow case (gender neutral)
Blanket & Pj's
Book and Game / Toy / or Stuffed animal.
Toothpaste, toothbrush and brush to comb
Hat, scarf, or gloves / mittens
Age appropriate items please

Each tree has an age group and we will be focusing on one age group every Sunday of Advent.
November 27 - ages 0-4
December 4 - ages 5-9
December 11 - ages 10-13
December 18 - ages 14-17
December 25 - Winter Gear

Please feel free to bring anything for any tree during this Advent season.

Spiritual Gifts
In 1 Peter 4:10, we are told that God has given each of us special gifts and calls us to use them to serve one another. To find out what God has given you, we would like to invite you to take the Spiritual Gifts Discovery Assessment. When you take this assessment online, your results will go into our system so that we can help you make the connection between your gifts and areas of service in ministries.

Once you complete your assessment, you will also receive your results. Plus, to help you understand your gifts and how to use them - when you finish the assessment, you can download a profile sheet for each of your gifts on the website.
