Emmanuel's Christmas Gifts 2021

Every Christmas season at Emmanuel's we place a Christmas tree with decorative tags on it so people can take a tag and make a purchase toward ELCA Good Gifts. This year we are going to again offer a virtual Christmas tree as well and you can pick a tag from our on-line wish list found below. Just click on the tag you want - and make your contribution for that gift. You can also partner with other people to buy a gift as a group. Your on-line payment will go directly to ELCA Good Gifts and the wish list will let Emmanuel's know how many items on the list have been purchased. Purchases can be made until December 30 and we will report the results in the Feb. Informer.
