Once again, we were able to have the opportunity to purchase gifts for children in need this year through the Christmas Tree Project in Morehead City. There were more families this year that signed up to receive gifts than last year and they all got adopted with over 200 children just at the Sports Center. We adopted nine children, ages two through 16 that we were able to shop for this year. Rev. Michelle, Roann Simons, Penny and Mark Hooper, Sarah and Jill Sutherland shopping this year along with Xander, Emily, Owen, Orion, Addie, Ella and Halle. Everyone came back to the Sunday School Building and had pizza and cookies and wrapped all the gifts. There were hats, Afghans, and animal critters from the Twisted Sisters and also a $25 gift card were included in the gift bags. Thank you so much to the Fellowship for contributing to such a worthy cause. I know it was appreciated by the families and our Angels put a lot of thought into what they purchased.
