Angel Tree

This year we will again have an angel tree in our sanctuary, a Christmas tree filled with tags of people who could use a special blessing from you this Christmas. In past years the names were only of children. This year we will be adopting entire families; there will be no names, just age and gender of each family member, and a suggestion of what they are wishing for this year. We ask that you try to keep your gift(s) to about $25.00 – $30, so they will be equal in value among family members. Children do notice if their sibling receives a bicycle and they get a pair of mittens. The tag MUST be returned with your gift, in order that they are delivered to the right person.

The tree will go up on, November 30 with the names ready for Sunday. Gifts will need to be brought to church on Sunday, December 8. This is a short window for shopping, just a week; we hope you will still want to participate in this opportunity to bless some less fortunate family in our community.

FIRST CONGREGATIONAL CHURCH

This year our Annual Ecumenical Thanksgiving Service will be held at First Congregational Church on Tuesday, November 26th at 7:00 p.m. Our guest speaker will be Rev. Michael Langer, the new pastor of Hilltop Covenant Church. As has been our custom, we will be receiving a special collection of money and non-perishable food item to donate to the Cromwell Human Services food pantry. All of our choirs will be joining together to minister in song, and we will join with one another following the service for a time of fellowship and refreshments downstairs.

Mark your calendars now and come join with God’s people for a time of Thanksgiving as we give thanks to our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ for His bountiful provision to us all.
