Matching Gift Challenge – To help fund our new Coordinator of Children’s Ministry position (filled by Blair Ward!), a donor has offered to match gifts up to $5000, between now and the end of January. Would you prayerfully consider giving above and beyond your regular contributions toward this goal? If you would like to give, please write a check to Christ Presbyterian Church and indicate "Coordinator of Children's Ministry" in the memo line.

Interested in following the Lindners’ journey over the next year – check out caringbridge.org/visit/wendylindner for updates and journal entries as Wendy undergoes a bone marrow transplant.

STEP Christmas Store – Each year STEP collects donations of new, unwrapped children’s gifts with the original purchase price tag intact. These donations are then marked to half price or less and made available to parents of children in the Gilpin Court community.  The deadline for donations this year is November 30. There is a collection box in the hallway.

Widows and Orphans – We will have a special offering for John and Jacinta Mukolwe and their ever-growing ministry of giving Christmas baskets to widows and orphans in Tanzania in the coming weeks.
