Yesterday, Pastor Cheryl also gave two checks from Aldersgate to the social worker at Glenwood Elementary to help two immigrant families (with children at Glenwood) keep their homes. These parents are seeking asylum, want to work, but do not yet have work permits. Each family had about $600 applied to their rents. The families, the school, and the social workers at Glenwood Elementary wish to express their gratitude to Aldersgate.
Thanks, Aldersgate. The church's generosity is heart-warming on these cold winter days.

Merry Christmas, everyone! Thank you to Aldersgate UMC for shining brightly with the love of Christ. Don't forget that we will receive a special offering again next Sunday, Jan. 1, for two immigrant families with children at Glenwood Elementary School, who are in danger of losing their homes. Make checks payable to Aldersgate and write "special offering" on the notation line. We are working with the social worker at that school to help make a rent payment.
For all those who asked for a copy of "The Christmas Quiz" today, here's a link to my sermon site:
Have a wonderful week!
