“Christmas on the Air”

December 18th
During Congregational Sunday Service

Rehearsal for singers is after church on Sunday until 1:00 pm. New singers are still welcome to join this week. Please contact Lark Schroeder at ScottandLark@gmail.com or 678-602-6285 if interested or if you have any questions!


The disciples in Pakistan are too poor to buy Christmas gifts for their children. Average income per family is $130. $100 goes for a one room apartment.  Aged parents, husband and wife and their children all live in this room. Communal toilets are outside  and cooking is also outside over a fire.
The remaining $30 is for food,  transportation,  medical, school fees, clothing, etc. Because they are Christian, they get only the lowest paying jobs. It is impossible for them to buy Christmas gifts for their children. 
Please help with donations to provide gifts for these 150 children. 
Checks can be made out to South Asia Mission Society and are tax deductible. 
I will be in the back of the sanctuary on Sunday to collect.

Cards may be sent to them at:

Instead of a meal train, gift cards to restaurants would be the most helpful and  thoughtful way to support the Tomol family as they adjust to a family of six. Suggestions are: Outback, Locos and Zaxby’s. Jillian’s email is jilliantomol@gmail.com and cards can be sent to James, Jillian, June, Philippa, Elliott and Theo Tomol at 215 Ferncliff Drive, Athens, GA 30606.
