"As you know, 2020 has been a year like no other, posing many new challenges to our normal way of doing things. The Jesse Tree Ministry is no exception. It was decided that we will have a modified version of the Jesse Tree Ministry this year, one that complies with the suggested precautionary measures to minimize risk of catching COVID. We will still provide Christmas gifts to those neighbors in need; however, gifts will be in the form of gift cards only. Please deposit gift cards in a sealed envelope to the drop-box in the narthex that is designated for the Jesse Tree.
PLEASE NOTE: We have extended the gift card collection timeframe for two additional weekends to give everyone who wishes to participate in this gift-giving ministry extra time. Therefore, the final deadline for Jesse Tree gift card drop-off to the church is now Sunday, November 29. If you wish to participate in this opportunity to give, please note the following:
1. Favorite stores to purchase gift cards from include: Walmart, Burlington Coat Factory, Kohl's and Amazon. A value of $25 per gift card is suggested.
2. Gift cards should be together in one envelope that you can place in the Jesse Tree Ministry drop-off box in the narthax.
