Gifts of Hope 2014: November 30th - December 21st
Would you like to give a unique gift to those on your list this Christmas season? Would you also like your purchase to benefit those in need? You can do both with a purchase of a Gift of Hope, sponsored by our local Metro DC Synod.
Beginning Sunday November 30th, you will have the opportunity to choose from 39 different gifts with prices ranging from $5 to $250. These gifts support the mission and programs of area Lutheran social service organizations, camps, college or seminary, and our Synod’s companion synods abroad. Each year St. Paul’s has the opportunity to add a #40 Gift of Hope, and this year’s gift supports the “St. Paul’s College Scholarship Fund” which provides tuition assistance to deserving students from St. Paul’s.
Watch for the Gifts of Hope table in the narthex after each service beginning this Sunday, November 30 and ending on December 21. You can view the catalogue, fill out an order form, and purchase your gifts with cash or check. You will receive a beautiful card and insert to use as your gift.
