    Gift of time idea with families: making beaded candy canes and attaching The Legend of the Candy Cane typed on a small piece of paper. I’ve done this with my kids for the last several years and we pick a night between Thanksgiving and Christmas to take them around to our neighbors. It is a great interaction with the kids. By handling the red and white beads, they get to talk about what Christ has done with us, that the cane is like a shepherd’s staff, and “J” for Jesus, and then they get to share that story with our neighbors.

    Since we have spent less, we’re done shopping for this year! (And they’re wrapped!) Now we get to concentrate on celebrating with our family.

Act Local: Share gifts of time and resources with those in our community. At the Impact Tree in the Atrium, find opportunities available for individuals, families and life groups. All the information you need will be on the cards by the Tree. Take a card – put an ornament on the tree.

Give Global: On Sunday, December 13 during services, we'll take up an Advent Conspiracy offering (a direct result of spending less) to give towards clean water projects and wheelchair needs in Honduras, Kenya and Romania. If you won’t be able to join us at services on that day but still want to participate, just write "Advent" in the memo of your check and drop it in any of the offering boxes.
