Deacon’s Christmas Food Baskets
The Deacons are collecting nonperishable canned goods and boxed items to supplement the Christmas Food Baskets. The baskets will be provided for our church members and regular attendees who might need some assistance as we approach the Christmas season. Donations can be dropped off at the 7th Street entrance of First Covenant now through December 5. The baskets will be gifted on Saturday, December 9.
