By Patty Rinehart, NBUMC CHILD volunteer
As many of you know the Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church (NBUMC) has been gathering Christmas presents for kids. The program is called “CHILD” (Christ’s Hands In Loving Devotion) clearly stating the intentions of the program. This program is meant to provide Christmas presents to children whose parents are unable to stretch their dollars that far. These children could be yours, your neighbors, or children whose parents are working but money is going for heat, rent, electricity, all the necessities. Our Nehalem Bay communities have been most generous with their giving. We do have a few tickets, late in coming, and I would like to ask you to help out just a little more. Please do what you can. Checks are also a good idea if you don’t have the time to get out and shop. Address below.
Here are the wish lists – please drop off gifts – UNWRAPPED – at Nehalem Bay United Methodist Church at 36050 10th St., Nehalem, or contact Patty Rinehart at email@example.com to arrange pickup:
