Thank you, NFUMC, for reaching our goal of sponsoring 24 gift bags for young ladies at Eternal Heiress!

  •  Any additional funds collected will go towards their Christmas Celebration - write “We Are the 99” on your check or offering envelope
  • You can still bring individually wrapped candy and snacks to go in the gift bags
  • You can help pack and pray over the bags on Friday, December 21, at 5:30pm in the Youth Area
  • You can help deliver the bags and celebrate Christmas with the young ladies on the afternoon of December 24 - contact Lisa Dickey if you would like to go

Thank you for showing Christ to these young ladies and being the light in their lives when it is a time that can feel so dark and alone.
