Christmas at Sea Gift Bag Assembly
- Date: Saturday, December 4, 2021
- Time: 11:00am–12:00pm
- Location: Fellowship Hall
We will again be collecting gifts for seafarers, but because of the pandemic, several things have changed. This effort will be even more important this year than usual. Christmas is always a lonely time of year for seafarers who are far from home and loved ones, but because of concerns about a covid outbreak onboard ship when they may be far away from medical treatment, most of them have not been permitted to have shore leave for many months. It is therefore even more important than usual to let them know that their efforts to keep the world economy functioning are appreciated. In order to eliminate the need for church members who may be concerned about exposure to covid to shop for individual items, the Mission Committee is purchasing items for the gift bags
in bulk, and is accepting cash donations to defray the cost. A donation of $10 will purchase items for one gift bag. Please make contributions to CPC and label them “Christmas At Sea.” Donations will be accepted through the end of November. Our goal is 50 gift bags.
We will be assembling the gift bags on Saturday, December 4, at 11 a.m. Members of the congregation are welcome to help in the assembly of the bags.
