Salvation Army Giving Tree

The Salvation Army is planning on doing their annual Christmas Giving Tree tags. There will be two ways to get tags. First Pres will have a group of tags that you can select from or if you would rather do a remote tag, you will be able to go online to the Salvation Army website, select a tag, then purchase the gift and have it delivered to the Salvation Army or drop it off at First Pres. As the details of this plan unfold, we will keep everyone updated. Questions, contact Debe Colby at 242-1923 or outreach@firstpresgj.org.


Operation Christmas Child

Samaritan’s Purse has confirmed that they are doing Operation Christmas Child this year and, in fact, they are saying now perhaps more than ever in the history of the Shoebox project, we need to send the message of Jesus to children around the world. As with so many other events in 2020, Operation Christmas Child will have a couple of different options to pack a shoebox. In October, we will provide details of how you can participate either online or by picking up a shoebox at church. If you are not familiar with Operation Christmas Child, visit Samaritan’s Purse website, www.samaritanspurse.org, and read about what occurs during this time. If you have questions, contact Debe Colby at 242-1923 or outreach@firstpresgj.org.
