It's Happening Now at Epworth!
AN AFTERNOON OF NATIVITIES
On Sunday afternoon, December 12, you are invited to come by the Gathering Place to see numerous nativity set displays. We are asking you to share with us your display(s) and they will we put out for others to enjoy between 4 and 6pm. Our hope is to have a variety of sizes and expressions of this special night. If there is a story behind your set, please share a brief description that we can share on a tent card. Come as a family or invite a friend to join you for this time of fellowship, refreshment and relax in an atmosphere of the season. Hope to see you there!
You can bring by a nativity to the office up to noon on the 12th. Sets can be picked up after 6pm on the 12th.
Our goal for the Angel Tree is always to provide a wonderful Christmas experience for those families that may be struggling with basics of life. If we can share a little love and kindness it ensures the light of Christ will continue to shine brightly through the darkness. We will gather information during Bread of Life Food Pantry days.
Angels will be on a tree in the narthex. We will also be creating a generic list of gifts that will be put together for each family based on children’s age. A wish list has been created on Amazon if you prefer to pick something from the list. The name of the list is Epworth Angel Tree. Click here for the list
In addition, We are accepting monetary donations that will be used to shop for the gifts.(Checks can be made out to Epworth UMC and noted as Angel Tree)
You can donate small items that could be used as stocking stuffers. These can be dropped off at Epworth during office hours. The gifts will be bagged and distributed in December.
Please contact Claudia Naus or Barbara Beitz with any questions or to see how you can help.
