Remember our deployed troops this Christmas
Help us collect the care items for our annual Stockings for Soldiers campaign in support of our troops deployed and away from their homes this holiday season.
We accept CASH DONATIONS to help pay for shipping costs. You can mail those to the church, drop donations on Sunday mornings, or bring by the church office, designated Military Stockings on your check or envelope.
We also welcome CHRISTMAS CARDS for our military members created by our children.
We can send stockings to your military loved one if you provide the name and address before Sunday, November 1.
For information, contact Betty Matthews, 972.727.5836.
