Bethlehem Star Tree
We will be sharing the spirit of the season this year with 125 children in need.
Stars representing each of these children are available in the Atrium, and contain the name, gender and wish list of a child served by Bethlehem Center.
This year, wish lists include:
* 3- and 4-year-olds: a hat, gloves, scarf and book
* Elementary-age children: a Christmas ornament, toothbrush and toothpaste and book
* Middle and high school kids:$25 gift card to Best Buy and a book.
Please return your gift by Sunday, December 7.
Donated items should not be wrapped.
At Providence UMC, we strive to be good stewards of all that God has given us. Rather than throw away our household items, we donate them to one or more of our missions.
If you have a heart for foreign missions, please consider donating your treasures to our annual Haiti Attic Sale that benefits our Haiti School of Mercy, the Haiti Microcredit Program, and The Haiti Mission (medical).
WE WILL BEGIN COLLECTIONS IN JANUARY, 2015.
"Whatever you ask in prayer with faith, you will receive."
- Matthew 21:22
Providence UMC partners with several missionaries and at their request, we offer specific prayers each week. For our missionaries we ask that you pray for respect for refugees and immigrant communities, an end to violence, continued financial support of specific programs, successful language learning, continued alliance with agencies in their respective communities, good health, travel mercies, the healthy growth of the church across the globe, ecological renewal, and most importantly, the Lord's guidance and wisdom.
