Each year, we take time as a congregation to focus on the needs of those in our community. We have partnered with several very wonderful local organizations, and this year is no different. We are partnering this Advent with YoungLives Saratoga : an organization that seeks to provide support, encouragement, and mentoring for young mothers and their children. We will have a special focus each week for giving, which is as follows:
December 14-20: Pray for and give Christmas Cards to YoungLives families
December 21-24: Special giving to bless Next Steps: a new crisis pregnancy center in Queensbury
Please bring Christmas cards this week to church or to Pastor Matt -reach out to Pastor Matt (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information.
