Friends Church Angel Tree is Back!
This is a way that Friends can bring joy to children from around the Brazos Valley. The Justice and Mission committee has been in touch with the Brazos County Child Welfare Board to find 65 children for Friends folk to sponsor. These are all children who have been removed from their homes and are in foster care at this time. This is an especially sad time to be apart from family. You may chose your sponsored child in person on Sunday after worship. You will receive a wish list for each child as well as instructions on what to do next. Starting on Monday November 21st, you may sign up for the children virtually. We will also be accepting food and gas cards for our pastors to distribute to those in need in our community. Gift cards can be mailed to the church or put in the Gift Card box that will appear under the Christmas trees in the narthex. Contact Anne Wehrly with questions.
In order to truly share God's extravagant welcome with all, we must be open and accepting to all people, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
We must also strive to make our worship services and fellowship accessible to all people of all abilities.
Our church is proud to be Open and Affirming, Accessible to All, an Earth Stewardship Congregation, and Verified Clear. To learn more about what that means to us, click here.
