Salvation Army Angel Tree
FPCRO is participating in Salvation Army’s Angel Tree gift program. Please use this link to sign up to donate a toy for a child: . The sign up includes a child’s gender, age, and suggested items. You can select as many items as you would like to donate. Toys can be dropped off at the church, unwrapped, by Monday, December 7. Call the church at 248-541-0108 during office hours (Monday, 9 am-3 pm and Tuesday–Friday 9:00 am-1:00 pm) if you need to have your item picked up from your porch.
Friends: We will have a mitten tree again this year to gather warm items—hats, mittens/gloves, scarves, socks—for those in need. During church hours, donated items may be placed on or under the tree in the Christian Education lobby. The items will be distributed to many places such as: Welcome Inn Day Center, 2nd Mile Center, schools in Royal Oak, etc. Mission and Benevolence will ensure all donated items find a home! Thank you for your support for this advent project, either by knitting or purchasing items!
An Advent Wreath for Your Home
This Advent, our hope is for families to experience the hope, love, joy and, peace of their own Advent Wreath. Our Christian Education Committee still has Wreath Kits for your home. You may stop by the church and pick up your kit or we can deliver one to your door. With your kit you will find a guide for lighting your wreath through the season of Advent.
Little Pantry Donations
The Mission and Benevolence committee welcomes contributions from anyone who so generously donates to support our Little Pantry.
A few ideas of what our pantry could use can be found below in a grocery list. Feel free to use as a reminder on your next trip to the grocery store.
These items can be dropped off at the office during normal church office hours or placed directly in the pantry. Monetary donations are another way to help keep our Little Pantry stocked. We thank you in advance for your donations!
We have resumed mailing used paperback books (NO hardcover books) to the military. Please consider donating from your library at home. The public libraries who were a source of our supply are currently closed and unable to donate, so now is a good time to clean out used paperbacks from your home. You may drop off used paperback donations at FPCRO in the church library. Or, arrangements can be made for home pick up. Contact Don and Adair Calder with questions.
