Hope for the Holidays
We will be sending Christmas cards to families in immigration detention and to children who crossed the border alone. It's easy as 1-2-3.
Buy or make Christmas cards and include an encouraging note in English or Spanish. Please note: only include your first name and do not put cards in individual envelopes. We will place all cards in a single box for shipment.
Join us on Sunday, December 02, as we decorate the church and make cards. We will have some blank cards on hand should you need some - OR - bring your cards to church by Sunday, December 09, and drop them in our card collection box.
Advent will mail the letters to First English Evangelical Lutheran church in Baltimore for distribution over the holidays.
Thank you for being Christ's hands and feet for others. You can find more information on our website
The Advent Book Club

in Moscow by Amor Towles
