CHRISTMAS SHARING: the Session of St. Columba is asking the congregation once again to support Christmas Sharing by way of a “Monetary Donation”. The goal is to help as many families as possible ($100 helps a family of 4). Last year the total raised was $1,586.00. Let us see if we can match and /or surpass this amount. If you would like to donate, mark on your offering envelope “Christmas Sharing”. Let us get behind this worthwhile outreach into our community.

TREE OF LIGHTS: As the Christmas Season approaches remember friends and family by purchasing a light to place on the Memorial Tree of Lights. Cost is $10 per light. The lighting of this tree will take place on Thursday, December 14th @ 6:30 PM. Please see Katie Cox to purchase light(s) and submit names you wish to be remembered. Light refreshments will follow the tree lighting.
