Sunday, December 7, 11:30am – 1:15pm, Fellowship Hall
We invite you to participate in College Avenue’s Festival of Gifts 2014–a seasonal event for children/youth ages 3 – 15 to create handmade gifts for people they love.
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:
- Set up and staff a gift project table with enough supplies for 20 children
- Set up and help staff the gift-wrapping station
- Help a child who needs assistance with gift projects, or be a “floater”
- Help with set-up (during worship) or clean-up (after 1:15 pm)
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.
