Another year has passed and the Christmas season is quickly approaching. This is a special time that we set aside to reflect on Christ’s birth, participate in family traditions, and join with loved ones to give and receive gifts. Although this holiday tends to be a joyous and highly anticipated event, for some families the idea of having to buy gifts for their children brings anxiety and sadness. It is Morning Star’s desire to share Christ’s love in a practical way by purchasing gifts for families that otherwise would not be able to give presents to their children. If you are facing a Christmas without gifts for your family, please take time to read the rest of this letter.
In order to be considered for Tree of Hope, you must be a regular attendee of Morning Star Fellowship for at least 3 months and not on a list to receive gifts from any other organization.
If this describes your family, please complete the application and drop it off at the church office, or mail to Morning Star Fellowship, 429 S. 9th St, Quakertown, PA, 18951 by Wednesday, December 5, 2018.
To ensure that all families will be receiving the same amount of gifts per child, we ask that you keep the following in mind when filling out the application:
• Be sure to list 3 gifts per child.
• Gift ideas should not exceed $30 per item.
• Gifts may be requested for children ages 18 and under.
Each gift request will be written on a gift tag and placed on our Tree of Hope in the EastWest Café area. Members of our church will take these gift tags and shop for your family. Gifts will be available for pick-up on December 20. The gifts will be wrapped and tagged by child’s age and gender. Please keep in mind that the church office is open from 8:30-4:30 on Thursday. If you are unable to pick up during these times, please let us know so that other arrangements can be made.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact Theresa Decker or Jade Landis in the church office at 215.529.6422 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be Filled With Hope!
