Christmas Wishes

Women at Fourth is again coordinating our annual Christmas Wishes project to provide gifts for Chicago Lights Tutoring students. To support this project we are collecting gift cards to Best Buy, Starbucks, McDonald’s, Uber, Target, and Amazon.

If you are dropping off gift cards at the church, please do so by Thursday, December 8, mark them to the attention of Simon Crow, and designate the amount on the card(s). (We are giving $25 worth of gift cards to each student.)

We are also giving books to each student. For a list of books, click here. To order online, click here or here. You can also order from your favorite retailer; please email Simon Crow with your purchase information if you do. And we certainly appreciate monetary contributions to support book purchases as well! Monetary gifts can be made to Fourth Church, noting “Christmas Wishes” in the comments/memo line. For details, email Simon Crow. All books are needed by Thursday, December 8.

New Opportunity: Prayer Shawl Ministry

The Prayer Shawl Ministry is a new initiative of the Caring Ministries Team and the Knitting and Crocheting Group, combining the love of knitting and crocheting with a way to reach out to those in need of comfort and solace: providing them with a tangible expression of care in the form of a handcrafted shawl or lap blanket.

To learn more about this ministry opportunity, join the Knitting and Crocheting group for its next meeting, following worship on Sunday, May 22 (approximately 11:15 a.m.) in Room 5B. You may also sign up via VOMO to access basic instructions.
