Outreach . . .
To proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ through care and concern for others both inside and outside the walls of the church.
This year, instead of choosing an angel from the tree in the Narthex and then heading to the mall, we are asking for monetary donations which the Upbring staff will then use to fulfill the Christmas wishes of hundreds of Texas foster children.
We realize that's not quite as much fun, but it is much safer for all of us during this crazy year.
NOW through NOVEMBER 30
Please make checks payable to Faith Lutheran Church notating "Angel Tree" at the bottom.
Mail them to the church office (6600 Woodrow Avenue, Austin TX 78757)
OR drop them by the church office using the mail slot in the door
OR donate on-line HERE. Please type "Angel Tree" on the Reveiw/Confirmation page by clicking on the + sign "please specify funds in notes."
