NBC will be collecting gifts for local families and young adults again this year. The tree, with suggested gifts on tags, is now up in the Narthex. The tags will specify the gift requested. The gift cards will come with a small gift bag in which to return the gift card. The gifts for Groton Human Services need to be returned by December 9(the tag will specify that) and be unwrapped (put in a gift bag or plastic bag). The other gifts may be returned on December 16. Leave the gifts in the church office on Sundays before worship or leave them in the church office with Gloria Mon.-Fri. between 9 am and noon. Gifts are to be locked up in the office during the week. There will be a sign-up sheet for persons to fill in for the tag(s) they have taken. Please put the number, color and shape of the ornament and your name so we can keep an accurate account of the gifts. Thank you all for your generosity. It is greatly appreciated and will make the holidays brighter for many in our community. Have fun shopping with a spirit of joy!
