IT'S ANGEL TREE TIME AGAIN It’s time to buy gifts for children with a parent who is incarcerated and to help them bridge the gap to restore that relationship. If you would like to bless a child in need this Christmas, you can pick a tag from the Angel Tree that will be set up in the Welcome Friends Center TODAY or next Sunday, November 25. All gifts need to be bought and brought back UNWRAPPED and placed in the box beside the Angel Tree by Sunday, December 9. Anyone interested in baking cookies, wrapping gifts and/or delivering gifts may sign up at the Angel Tree table. If you have questions, see Chery Lambdin at the Angel Tree table or call 440-213-5588.
