CHRISTMAS OUTREACH TO THREE CHOPT ELEMENTARY SCHOOL and GROVE FAMILIES
Would you be willing to spend $25 and bless a child? The Christmas tree in the foyer next to the preschool desk is filled with ornaments that indicate a particular present a child is hoping for this Christmas. The red ornament represents a child at Three Chopt Elementary and the purple ornament represents one of our own Grove kids. Please take an ornament, purchase the indicated item, wrap it and return it to the table in the foyer on or before December 6th. Attach the ornament to the present so we know which child should be receiving this particular gift.
You are encouraged to take care of your most important earthly relationship! Weekend to Remember, sponsored by Family Life, has upcoming opportunities near Richmond. For more information visit the table in the foyer or to register go to www.familylife.com/weekend. Enter group code “GROVE” for discount.
