For children the crunch of wrapping paper and finding a hidden treasure within can mean so very much. That’s why for fifty-six years the members and friends of First Church have delighted in taking children’s names from our Narthex Christmas tree. This year the name tags will appear on Sunday, November 27th. Once again children from Lord’s Lambs Ministry in Pembroke and from Bethany Pastore El Buen Church in Chicago will be the recipients of our gift giving. If you take a pair of tags from the tree, please remember to write your name and phone number on one tag, place it in the basket, and take the matching tag with you, so that you have the child’s age and size for shopping. After wrapping the gift, please securely attach the tag that you took with you to the present. If you prefer, sending money for others to shop for you, your monetary gift is also much appreciated. Please make checks payable to First United Methodist Church Elmhurst or use this PayPal link: HERE or use this QR Code:
Gifts will be delivered on Sunday, December 11, after worship. Over the years, these Christmas gifts have brought joy to literally tens of thousands of children. Be part of the joy and take a tag or two from the tree this year!
