In anticipation of Christmas, the Mission Board has organized Alternative Giving opportunities beginning November 27. Tree tags for the Salvation Army Angel Tree will be available. Gifts for kids will need to be returned to the church by December 18. The Mitten Tree will be available to be decorated with your donations of hats, gloves, scarves, etc. These items will be taken to the Iowa City School District for use in the schools, in honor of Joan Buxton who was a school nurse for many years.
Project Holiday tree tags/envelopes will also be available starting November 27. This is the CommUnity annual holiday meal distribution. Donations will be mailed by the donor, and must be received at CommUnity by December 17.
Mission Board members will take orders for Heifer Project gifts after church on November 27 and December 4. Payments by check will be received, and Ginny Clemmons will personalize gift cards that can be mailed by the purchaser. The catalog can be viewed here: https://www.heifer.org/gift-catalog/index.html
Members of the church have offered to sell some of their art items for Alternative Giving, so be sure to stop by their tables to find a gift to purchase!
