Christmas Collection

From December 1 – 15, CPS is collecting items for a “Baby Shower for Jesus.” When Jesus was born and placed in a manger, there were no baby showers or fancy cribs. We will kick off our celebration this Friday, 12/1, with a special dress down day. The “price” to go out of dress code is either an item from the attached list or a $3 donation. We will continue to collect items through December 15, to be received by The Lutheran Mission Society for their Compassion Centers the following week. Please see below for a list of needed items, and donate as generously as you are able. Thank you for sharing your shower of blessings with those in need. Let’s Stuff the LMS Truck with love, prayers, and gifts!
