Holiday Giving Opportunities at Guardian Angels

Hard to believe, but it’s time! You are invited to be a part of the Guardian Angels outreach to those in our community who could use some help creating a happy holiday for their families. Starting this weekend, you can stop by the Angel Tree in the back of church and select a tag or two. Bring your unwrapped, new gifts back to the tree BEFORE noon on Sunday, December 10. Don’t want to shop? We also need gift cards, so look for a tag on the tree requesting those.

Want to share a bit more time and resources? Also, you can sign up to sponsor gifts and dinner for a family assigned to us through Community Thread in Stillwater. Sign up yourself or gather with a few others and sponsor a larger family. More information is available at the sign-up table in the back of church. 

Our Angel Tree Prayer

God of love, bless us with the knowledge that each tag hanging on our Angel Tree has a face and a name behind it.

May we all share what we have been given with someone who needs the blessing of our gift.

As we choose a tag, we also offer a prayer that the recipient will know your love, peace and care in their lives.

As we place our gifts under this tree, we pray that whoever receives them also be gifted with what they most need in their lives.

Generous God, we know that each good gift is given to be shared.

Help us to always remember the needs of others in our world and act to respond to those needs in love.

Amen.
