Bring in your Simple Gifts!

boy_with_christmas_presentSimple Gift Swap Sunday, Dec. 20 10am-noon

We have less than 2 weeks until our Simple Green Gifts Swap on Sunday December 20th. Please search your homes and closets for items still in great condition that you would be willing to give away (no new purchases please), that might make a better gift for someone else, and bring them in to the DRE’s office. We’re going to upcycle! We also need donations of gift boxes, wrapping paper, newspaper, maps, posters for wrapping, ribbons, string, tags, bags, etc. Bring them in any time and drop them off with Fran or right into the DRE office. Gifts will be accepted all the way until 10am on the morning of December 20th, when kids will meet together for RE in the Commons and we’ll learn about the spirituality and intentions of gift giving both in our traditions and others, and then migrate downstairs to Parish Hall where they will “shop” for gifts that match the needs of loved ones (not for themselves) and then wrap the gifts in the library. When adults come downstairs after the service, there will be some additional treats like cookies and hot chocolate, and the whole congregation can “shop” the gifts. So search your house for unneeded gems and bring in your donated gifts! And please email Chris at if you’re interested in volunteering to help sort, organize the event flow, or drive any remaining gifts to a donation center after the event.
