Among the traditions that bind us together at BHCC are the Angel Trees through which members, for many years, have shared their blessings with brothers and sisters beyond our congregation whose material needs are greater than ours. This year is no exception. As you travel from the sanctuary to Fellowship Hall, you will see three “trees” on your left. This year we are collecting items for the following organizations:
1. Hekima Place and its founder Kate Fletcher have been dear to BHCC for many years. The Angel Tree will help support the girls who live there. 2. BHCC is a host site for Family Promise families. We are collecting items to support the families. 3. The Veterans Leadership Program of Western PA empowers veterans to navigate the transitions of life. Items to assist in its mission are being collected.
The Mission and Outreach Committee is deeply appreciative of the way in which the Angel Trees project has, over the years, been an integral part of the way BHCC members celebrate the Advent season, and we are confident this year will continue that blessed tradition.
