CAC of Benton County
Our ministry partner, the CAC of Benton County, is looking for volunteers to wrap gifts for children and families receiving their services. The day of wrapping is Dec. 3 with morning and afternoon slots. Volunteers can sign up at www.fpcsiloam.com/CAC. They are also accepting donations of wrapping paper. They anticipate needing 100 rolls! If you would like to donate paper, you may drop rolls off at the church.
Bright Futures is again collecting new winter coats for children within our local school district and FPC Outreach is asking our church to step in and help. This is the 2nd of 3 ways we’re asking the church to practice presence in our community this holiday season. Cards will be available for pickup on Sunday mornings or at the church office and will indicate the size and gender to be purchased. Coats may be placed in the Bright Futures bins at each entrance no later than Dec. 1. Contact Chuck Hyde at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
