The Southwestern Conference Youth Ministry Team presents:
Santa’s Secret Shoppe Saturday, December 10 8:30 am - 1 pm
Immanuel Lutheran Church, 556 East Second St., Jamestown Joint Neighborhood Project is doing something special for children and their families--and they need the help of Lutheran Youth to make it happen! At Santaʼs Secret Shoppe, children from low-income families will “shop” for donated gifts for parents and other significant adults in their lives. Lutheran Youth in grades 7 and up are needed to accompany children through the shoppe, help them select gifts, and wrap presents. It is a practical way to demonstrate the love of Jesus around the conference. And itʼs pretty fun, too! The Conference Youth Ministry Team will show you what to do, plus spring for pizza afterwards! RSVP to Ian at (716) 720-8584 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
