Once again this Christmas, our Angel Tree will focus on families and individuals who, without our support, would have little or nothing on Christmas morning. Families and individuals have been identified through the faculty and staff at Valle Crucis School and the staff at Life Care Center in Banner Elk.
Look for our Angel Tree to be up and decorated on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. And with Thanksgiving being later this year, please try to pick your angels early.
We encourage you to make choosing and filling listed needs from these Angels a Holiday tradition for your family.
“A Simple Gesture” Continues
Food/Grocery Drive for the Hunger & Health Coalition
One in four children in the High Country are hungry. Along with other churches in the area, we have a simple way to meet this immediate need. Green recyclable grocery bags are available in the Choir Room. Simply fill them with the items listed on the bag and return it to the Choir Room (under the bell tables) on the date listed on the bag. Thank you!
Valle Crucis Community Tree Lighting and Carol Sing
Mark Your Calendars on Friday, December 6, 2019 for this annual tradition.
5:30 pm (Lower Parking Area at Holy Cross)
The Valle Crucis Community Tree Lighting & Carol Sing
This annual event invites neighbors and friends to gather for a time of light refreshments, fellowship, singing carols and “songs of the season,” followed by the lighting of the huge spruce tree that dominates our lower parking area.
Begun as a way to gather the community following the 2016 Valle Landing fire, the lighting of our tree serves as a beacon of hope and reminds those near and far of the blessings we experience together each and every day in this fair valley.
So, tell your neighbors, friends, and families, and do plan to attend.
