We have been blessed with the opportunity to show love to 21 children from 7 families. The children range from 3 months to 13 years and all are in Blanco. 18 of the 21 children attend school in Blanco while 3 are infants. We would love to make sure every child gets a new outfit possibly including socks and underwear and a couple of their wish list items. Most of which are fairly cheap.
To find out more check the Angel Tree board in the narthex, or contact Ashley Finch at (830-237-6288). All donations for the Angel Tree recipients are due back at church by Dec 16th.
There are several ways to be an Angel Tree Sponsor:
1. Full Sponsor; take a child from the board and purchase their clothing and wish list.
2. Partial Sponsor; take a child from the board and purchase either their clothing or wish list.
3. Donating Sponsor; choose a name and donate to that name or just make a general donation towards all Angel Tree kids. Dedicated shoppers will use the funds donated to make sure each child receives their special gifts.
5. Item Sponsor; donate general items that can be divided where needed. Some common wish list items are coloring supplies, coloring books, arts and crafts, balls and stuffed animals.
6. Bike sponsor; donate towards the bike fund. There are 9 children who have wish listed a bike. We will be watching ads to get the best deals possible on the bikes.
Amy Jeanne Welton will be donating a Bible to every child and we will send a Spanish Bible to the homes who do not speak English.

NURSERY RENOVATION COMPLETED SOON!
The Nursery expansion, (knocking out the wall that separated the original nursery from the office area) was completed in July and enlarged the space for little ones. In August new flooring and paint was added to complete the transformation. All work will be completed by September 8th, when the Nursery will again be open to our littlest members at the start of another Sunday School year!
