ELCA Good Gifts Catalogs are in the Narthex for this Christmas season
Your gifts given in the names of friends or loved ones through the A Good Gifts program can make a real difference in the lives of people around the world. Some examples are: A goat and a flock of chicks to start a family farm, school supplies to allow a needy child to start school, and support for a refugee family for a week---all for less than $100 each. These are perfect Christmas gifts for friends who seem to have everything, for teenagers to teach them a lesson in sharing God’s gifts or for shut-ins who might enjoy contact with the outside world.
