Offerings

Oakwood Project: Again this year RLPC will be providing toys for Oakwood.  Our church needs to purchase toys for approximately 70 -80 children ages 0-4. Approximately $25 is spent on each child. Donations of money for toys are being accepted until December 11.
If you are contributing toys, please drop them off on or before December 4th.  Toys will be distributed on December 18th.  Your continued support of this yearly project is deeply appreciated.
__________________
JOIN US AFTER WORSHIP ON DECEMBER 11TH
We will be wrapping toys for Oakwood immediately following worship and Circle 4 will be providing a light lunch.
(This will be instead of our monthly Potluck Lunch)
We hope everyone can come to help! (We could also use some extra wrapping paper and tape.)
__________________
HEART AND HAND
Please help share Christmas joy by providing stocking stuffers. Any small gift that would fit in a stocking for
infants and children through age 12 would be appreciated!
(A FEW GIFT IDEAS ARE: Bubble bath, toothbrush, toothpaste, coloring books, crayons, gloves, scarves, small cars, Play-Doh, hair bows, jewelry, paints,
colored pencils, small stuffed animals)
Bring your unwrapped gifts to the church by Sunday, December 11th. They will be distributed at Heart and Hand on December 19th during their Christmas
Toy Shop. (Anyone interested may come and volunteer during the distribution.)
Thank you for your support! During Christmas 2015 Heart and Hand helped 690 children with Christmas toys.
(Note: If you would rather provide gifts for a child through the Angel Tree program you can contact Hilda Alsop at 304-768-8496.)
