Cadence Lavergne, right, puts finishing touches on a card for the shoebox she packed with grandmother, Nancy, helping on Sunday, Nov. 11 at the North Creek United Methodist Church. The project was part of Operation Christmas Child.
Another favorite holiday tradition at North Creek United Methodist Church (NCUMC) for many years is supporting Heifer Project International. HPI has been helping to end worldwide hunger since 1944.
They provide struggling families all around the world with gifts of livestock and training so family members can lift themselves out of poverty. NCUMC members and friends give donations to HPI in the name of someone who has many blessings, and doesn’t need more “stuff.” Ark banks are filled with loose change as well.
Needs in the local community are of concern all through the year, and especially for the holidays. Donations are collected for the Adirondack Community Center Food Pantry so that our neighbors in need will have a Merry Christmas. Everyone is welcome to attend NCUMC worship services at 9 a.m., with Sunday School available for young children at 9:15 a.m.
