We hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful. We have so many things to be thankful for at Thanksgiving and throughout the year. We begin this holiday season with Advent as we prepare for Christmas. This is a time for many activities including gift buying for those individuals on our Christmas lists. At this time of year, we are all not as fortunate and able to purchase gifts for those we love. Because of the gifts God has given us at CPNS, we have decided to help those less fortunate.
This year, we will be purchasing gifts for children from our own Skeet’s Food Pantry. We are partnering with our Christian Education committee in order to help make these children’s Christmas wishes come true. Our program, Pennies for Presents will begin on Monday, November 26. The children will be bringing in pennies, change, or bills to help us purchase the gifts for the children in the Skeet’s Food Pantry families.
Pennies for Presents is a concrete opportunity for our children to participate in helping others. The past programs were extremely successful and the many pennies collected made Christmas a lot brighter because of all our efforts.
