Angel Gift Tags Have Arrived! Please visit the Christmas “Angel” tree in the Narthex. Each of the Angels represents a gift request for a child or youth from Rising Hope Mission Church in Alexandria. To participate, select an angel from the tree and WRITE DOWN your gift selection and contact information on the sign-up sheet. Purchase and wrap the gift, and secure the angel tag on the gift. (A gift should cost about $25). Bring your gift to the church by Sunday, December, 9th. Delivery volunteer/s are needed to deliver the gifts to Rising Hope UMC by December 12th between 9:30 am-4:00 pm. Please contact Linda Austin to help.
