Last year we distributed 300 bibles to community children through our Angel Tree program. This year we would like to do even more and add teen bibles. For the month of October, Children's Ministry and Missions & Serving are teaming up for a special offering. We will be collecting monetary gifts that will go to purchasing new bibles for Angel Tree children and teens. Please help us by being a part of this great service opportunity. You may drop donations off in the Children's Foyer October 1-31st or place them in the offering plate by marking Angel Tree Bibles on the memo line. You can also make a donation online by going to fmcm.org/angeltree. For more information contact Michelle Gery at firstname.lastname@example.org or Vicky Hale at email@example.com.
