Once again St. Matthew will have an ingathering of Christmas Gifts through New Hope Ministries to be distributed to those who otherwise may not have any Christmas gifts. The Christmas tree will be in the Gathering Place during the month of November. Please remove an ornament, purchase the gift and return the gift unwrapped, with the ornament attached and place under the tree by Sunday, November 26.
The gifts will be delivered to New Hope in time to be shared with Hanover area families by Christmas. We are also collecting Wal-Mart gift cards in the amount of $25 for the HUD residents. There will be envelopes on the tree marked for HUD. Please put the gift card in the envelope and place it in the offering basket or return it to the church office by Monday, November 27 at 9 a.m. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of these families and making this year a brighter Christmas.
