Heifer International invites us to give Christmas gifts to our friends and loved ones in the form of donations, which in turn help struggling families around the world lift themselves out of hunger and poverty. Our donations placed in the Heifer Ark on Sunday mornings buy working animals for families in need. Please take a Heifer card (available in the narthex) for each donation of $10 that you make, to send to family members or friends you wish to honor with your charitable gift. St. Paul’s annual goal is $5000, which purchases a GIFT ARK of animals (two cows, sheep, camels, llamas, etc.). With your generosity, we can give life-changing gifts to even more impoverished families and communities this year.
