Angel Tree (Champion: Janet Rooks, Phyllis Beyer, Lois Gilbert). Angel Tree is our Christmastime program wherein members can select a paper angel from a tree in the Narthex which specifies a particular gift for someone in need. Many times the gifts are for residents of Cobb County battered women's shelter or their children or for people our members know who have fallen on hard times. Usually the gifts requested are for clothing, personal care items, or small toys for children.
Samaritan's Purse Christmas Child
Samaritan's Purse Christmas Child (Champion: Dave Winchell/ Gladys Schlegel). Every November, for the Christmas Season, Samaritan's Purse conducts its Christmas Child program, in which shoebox-sized gift boxes for boys and girls are assembled and driven to a collection center. From there, they are shipped to various countries for distribution to poor children. Our annual goal each November is at least 100 boxes.
Thanksgiving Meals. Poor families in the community get a free Thanksgiving meal by way of an annual plea to our members. Food is collected or bought with contributions and organized into family meal bags and distributed to a list of families each November. We also collect different bags for students at KSU that live in dorms on campus that cannot afford food. We need volunteers to help fill baskets and deliver them to the people in need. If you would like to help, please contact the church office.
