The Festival of Gifts will begin soon after worship with a simple lunch for children in a secret on-site location, After all have eaten, Fellowship Hall will be open to children, offering a variety of gift projects geared to a variety of ages, as well as a gift-wrapping station.
How you can help:
Creative adults and older youth are needed to:
To join the fun by volunteering, please sign up on November 23, or call Patti Canoles (521-1080) or Judy Brown (239-7011).
Parents will need to sign their children in and out, and provide a phone number at which they can be reached, and then make themselves scarce, so surprises can be kept secret. Pick-up time is 1:15 pm — please be prompt! Advance registration by November 30 will help us plan for lunch.
Festival of Gifts is a long-standing College Avenue tradition, revived by Women of Wonder (WOW), with new participants each year.

Millions of people die of hunger each year and CWS/CROP very efficiently distributes the funds we raise in our communities to provide help throughout the world to people in need. Twenty-five percent of funds that we raise in Modesto will remain at work here in our community through Inter-Faith Ministries.
The CROP Hunger Walk 2013 enables each of us to help – as a walker, a sponsor, or a supporter. We walk because the hungry must walk, often far and wide, to gather the most meager sustenance. During our four-mile (or two-mile) walk, we’ll be walking with as well as for those hungry people the world over.
If you’d like to be a sponsor, ask friends and loved ones to donate online at http://www.cropwalkonline.org/modestoca or give you or a sponsor a check written to “CWS/CROP” so their generosity will be counted this Saturday. We’ll begin with a short gathering/rally at 9:30am at the Geneva Presbyterian Church, Fairmont & Coffee Ave. (across from Downey High School), and the walk will begin at 10am. Click this link to check out the route.
For more information, please call Doug Smith at 523-1014, or Velma Tinkler, 579-5407.
