YOUTH GROUP WILL VISIT NEW YORK CITY
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 16, 2018
Members of our Youth Group will be visiting New York City to attend Service at Hillsong Church on Sunday, December 16th at 12:00 pm. After the service, they will go for a pizza lunch at 1:30 pm and then wrapping up with a brisk walk to Rockefeller Plaza to see the Christmas Tree. Comfortable shoes and proper attire for the cold weather highly recommended.
From December 3rd to December 17th we will be participating in a local mission opportunity called Angel Tree. Those wishing to participate will be providing an inexpensive gift for senior adults that are homebound and receiving Meals-on-Wheels from the Yorktown Nutrition Center and some 3 & 4 year old children who are in the Head Start Program here in Yorktown.
There is a “tree” in the back of the sanctuary with cut out angels (with a name and whether a homebound adult or a 3 or 4 year old child) hanging on it. People wishing to participate can take 1 or more angels and buy an inexpensive gift ($10.00 – $15.00), and put it in a gift bag (please do not wrap the presents), attach the angel cut out to it and return it on either December 4th or December 11th. (They will be delivered to the Nutrition Center director and Head Start on December 19 for distribution). We will hand out a sheet of instructions and some possible gift suggestions and people are invited to participate. Some gift possibilities for homebound adults are: moisturizers, slippers, hand lotion, warm socks, fleece throws / lap robes, large print books or magazines, audio books, bedside caddy, gloves, scarves (for trips to the doctor, mild cologne or after shave or anything you can come up with. Gift possibilities for 3 & 4 year old children are age appropriate toys, simple puzzles and games or books. Food is not permitted.
Thank you for your caring and sharing during this season of giving.
