CHRISTMAS FAMILIES The Daughters of the King have arranged for two families each consisting of mother, father and two children to be adopted by St. Alban’s this year through Lutheran Social Services. On Sunday November 19 a tree filled with ornaments that have gift requests listed on the back will be located in the narthex. Please be sure to register your gift selection with a Daughter at a table nearby, where the ornament will be exchanged for a gift tag which you will attach to your gift. All gifts should be new and wrapped in Christmas paper. A basket of labels, from which you may choose food and hygiene items needed by the families, will also be available at the table. You do not have to wrap these items; just place them in the laundry basket with the family number, located by the tree. All gifts, food and hygiene items are due at the church by Sunday, December 3. Thank you for your assistance with this project.
