The Giving Tree
The Missions Committee has once again put up The Giving Tree in the narthex. We ask that the congregation consider taking a tag (with specific clothing items noted) and/ or a bag with a list of needed items, that will be donated to the three B-G schools. The items on the tags are given to the school nurses for students in need during the school day. Items in the bags will be donated to the Bobcat Boutiques located in all B-G locations. The Committee asks that all donations be returned under the tree by Sunday, Dec. 23rd. Thank you for being part of this wonderful mission project we are able to do each year.
Our mission is to reach out to our community, loving those that God has placed before us, and seeking justice. This is expressed through a number of varied activities that help us to look beyond the four walls of our building, to see where God's grace is leading us.
Because of all the hard work done by members and friends of the congregation at the thrift store and contributions made throughout the year, the church was able to make substantial donations to the Presbyterian Disaster relief efforts in Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. If anyone would like to contribute directly to these relief programs, contact the church, go to the Presbyterian Church web site or send them to the Mission Committee.
