This year we'll have our traditional Angel Tree, plus another tree for collecting hats, scarves, mittens and gloves for people in need. They'll be in the Great Hall beginning Sunday, November 29. You'll also have the option to donate to Angel Tree online! 

Here are several different ways you can help:
1. Choose a tag or tags from the tree in the Great Hall, and write your name and contact info on the gift list. Purchase and wrap your gifts, then place them under the Angel Tree by December 15. 
2. Help shop for gifts for those who donated online.
3. Help wrap gifts that were purchased.
4. Help deliver gifts to our Angel Tree families.
5. Donate and decorate our second tree (should we call it our Everett ElemenTree?) with new and gently used hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens.

Coffee, Anyone?

We are excited to announce a new partnership starting this Sunday with Rock-N-Joe Coffee in Lincoln.  In our new café Rock-N-Joe will offer coffee and artisan drinks for sale, along with pastries and breakfast sandwiches, Sundays from 7:30 am to noon and weekdays from 7:30 - 9:30 am.  Stop by and enjoy a beverage and snack before or after worship, on your way to work, or after dropping the kids off at school.

Our regular free coffee and donuts will resume in the near future.
This year, you can enjoy an original Christmas story about the first Christmas, a young girl and her family, and a cat. Scott Guenther, our director of digital ministries, wrote this story as a gift to all this Christmas. The 24-part story will be released 1 chapter every day, beginning on December 1st and ending on December 24. Scott set up a website for the story here. If you want reminders of when a new chapter is released each day, click the subscribe button.
