Community Outreach: Christmas “Giving” Tree Our Christmas “Giving” Tree in the Narthex is collecting gift cards for the teens at Vine Maple Place, an organization in Renton that helps homeless families.

  • Take an ornament and purchase a gift card(s) for Starbucks or McDonalds in $10.00 dollar amounts. 
  • Drop the purchased gift cards in the box next to the tree.  Please drop them in the box by Sunday, December 12, so that teens will have an opportunity to spend time with their friends at these places.

Sunday, December 5th & 12th, we will be collecting Winter Coats for the Issaquah Food Bank and Toys for Eastside Baby Corner.

Issaquah Clothing Bank needs new warm coats in all sizes kids to adults. Eastside Baby Corner is looking for toys small enough to put in a backpack. They suggest: puzzles, books, baby dolls, building blocks, stacking toys and small cars.
