Look for the Hope for the Holidays Christ­mas tree in Gordon Hall starting tomorrow. Please return by December 10. This is a re­warding family service project of the Local Service and Mission Commit­tee, and we appreciate everyone who brings joy to the families of Family Promise who are now in their own homes.

Gainesville Community Ministry Food Drive: The Session is sponsoring a food drive for GCM through the end of the year. GCM has been running so low on food that some shelves are empty. If able, please bring donations to Gordon Hall of corn, string beans, pork and beans, soups (any kind), mac and cheese, canned chicken, canned tuna, peanut butter, or pasta. Additionally, the GCM food cart will be placed at the church entrance as a reminder to bring nonperishable food every Sunday. Thank you for your support of this local ministry.
