Please help make Christmas morning a little brighter for several children in our area. Tags with gift information will be available after church on Nov 25th. Please return your wrapped gift by Sunday, December 16th with the tag lightly affixed so that we will know which gifts have been returned. We will then write the child’s name on the front of the tag and firmly affix it to the gift before delivery. If you would like to participate but are unable to shop you may give Evelyn money and the shopping will be done for you. Thanks so much for your generous help with our Angel Tree project!

FROM CAMP CHANCO:
Dear friends at St. Anne’s: I am writing today to express my heartfelt appreciation for your generous support of “The campaign for Chanco.” Thanks to your generosity, we are able to continue this important ministry. Through this campaign we are expanding the Dining Hall adding hospitality, camp store and office spaces along with dining space to sear an entire campsite together. Flournoy Hall will receive a complete interior and exterior renovation. In addition, we are building a new multi-purpose structure adjacent to Flournoy Hall for gathering, meeting and worship purposes. Finally, are making needed facility repairs and improvements, and providing seed funding for a property maintenance endowment fund. With these enhancements, Chanco will provide aesthetically appealing spacers for our gusts while offering greater comfort and functionality, enabling our transformative ministry to grow for generations to come. Your gift has not only brought us one step closer to fulfilling our vision for an even better Chanco, but it has demonstrated to other the importance of this effort. Thank you for your commitment to Chanco on the James and we ask your prayers for our continued success.
Sincerely, Gareth Kalial Executive Director.
