The Hope, Peace, Joy, and Love brought to the world through the birth of Jesus that we celebrate every year during Advent is a blessing that is meant to be shared.
This year we are asking the children and youth of the Giddings-Lovejoy Presbytery to share that blessing by helping make Christmas a little brighter for the children and youth served by the Presbyterian Children’s Homes and Services (PCHAS).
Every year gifts are donated to PCHAS for the children and youth they serve. These gifts need to be sorted so they can be distributed during Christmas.
On Saturday, December 9, 2023, PCHAS is asking the children, youth, and their sponsors to come to the St. Charles Presbyterian Church (131 Gamble St., St. Charles, MO) from 10:00 am until noon to help sort these gifts for distribution. All children and youth are welcome as well as any adults that would like to support them.
Following the sorting, we will join together for a fellowship hour with pizza and drinks to thank all of the volunteers for their participation and let them enjoy meeting other children and youth in the Giddings-Lovejoy Presbytery.
Please RSVP to Jolene Patterson so that ample pizza and drinks will be available for the volunteers. All ages are welcome to learn the joy of sharing our blessings at Christmas. (Flyer Found Here)
