prison inmates choose presents for their children, which are purchased and
delivered by members of the church. The names of these children along with the
gift requested is posted on our church bulletin board after Thanksgiving so
that there is plenty of time to deliver the gifts to these little angels.

Join this wonderful group at any meeting or contact Jackie Todaro:
"Christian stewardship is the free and joyous activity of the child of God and God’s family, the church, in managing all of life and life’s resources for God’s purposes." Stewards “belong” to God and, as they mature, they seek out God’s will for their stewardship attitudes and practices. We Christians have not just been “saved from” but we have also been “saved for,” that is, saved for doing good works which honor God and bless others. Stewards support that work with their time, talents and resources as they are led by the Spirit.
