Durable plastic, pre-printed, boxes are also available for $2 each. If you have questions or would like a large quantity of either type of box, please contact Bev Lopatka.

Christmas Photos. We are looking for Christmas photos to share in a video during the Singing Christmas Tree performances; photos of your family during the Christmas season that would be fun for everyone to see. Please submit your photos to the church office in an envelope marked “TREE Photos” and be sure you put your name on the back of the photos so we can return them to you when we are done with them.
