Be a Christmas Angel – help area families

posted in: Advent, Christmas, Outreach | 1

Have you always wanted to be one of those generous anonymous people who do wonderful things for people they’ve never met? Here’s your chance. St. Thomas’s will help several area families have a good Christmas by providing gifts for them. Look for the Angel Tree. Take a tag or two or three. KEEP THE TAG. Purchase the items and wrap them. Please put the tag with the gift so that we can get the right gifts to the right people. Please bring your gifts to the church by Sunday, December 18. It’s that easy and our neighbors will appreciate your generosity. If you have any questions, contact Cami Seward at the church office or Connie Cooper at 302–731-7595 or cjcooper15@verizon.net.

Episcopal Relief and Development – Gifts for Life

posted in: Christmas, Service | 0

On the name tag table are Gifts for Life catalogs. Instead of giving another sweater or tie to the person who needs nothing, consider honoring your loved ones with gifts to those in need. This offers the opportunity to give something that keeps giving all year round!

A gift card is sent to explain the gift you have chosen. Some of your recipients may adopt the idea as their own tradition. Please pick up a catalog or see Sister Jackie if you have questions. You can also do this by phone at 1-855-312-HEAL or on line at www.episcopalrelief.org/giftsforlife.

Bake Sale at the Christmas Bazaar

posted in: Christmas | 0

We are asking for volunteers to bake items (cookies, cakes, mini breads, fudge, cupcakes, and so forth) for our bake sale. Please bring items packaged for sale, except for some of the cookies which we will use to make up cookie trays with a varied assortment. If you bring a cake, please cut it in half or quarters as the smaller size will make it easier to sell. If possible, bring items to the church on Thursday morning when we will be doing setup. If that isn’t possible, bring them Friday morning before the 10:00 a.m. start.

Questions? Contact Carol Palermo at cpalermo625@gmail.com
