Senior of the Week:  Christine Willey, Pleasantview Nursing Home, 401 Snyder Avenue, #222, Barberton, OH 44203.



As I listened  in church last Sunday, I felt really blessed.  We have a church family that is so generous, responsive and willing to "dig in" and get the job done!  But I also realize that we are stretched to the max at times and our resources unlike Gods are limited.  We do believe in miracles and have witnesses many!

With all that said I bring to you The Giving Tree!  We all realize that the need is real and seems to be growing.  I would like to encourage us to look for opportunities to get other people involved.  It is such a blessing to give so take a minute and think.  
Is your place of employment looking for a Christmas project?  How about a club or group you belong to?  Ladies you lunch with or the guys you hunt or golf with, might really enjoy adopting a family.  A small group of my friends said last year that we don't need anything so they have already dropped off money to sponsor a family.  Who can we offer the opportunity to be Jesus ambassadors of love?
You or your group can adopt an entire family or child, I will supply the wish list and you do the shopping or you can just donate funds.  We can always use grocery store or gas station gift cards for our families.  Contact me for specifics.  Or as always you can take a tag or two from the tree located in the communication center.  Please wrap your gifts if you can, attach the tag and return them to church by December 20.
I know it's early, but given the extra time, we can hopefully get more people involved and we will be able to meet all the needs presented to us!
