Bower Hill has a long tradition of having Angel Trees as part of our Advent Season activities. With the pandemic causing a suspension of in-person worship, the Mission and Outreach Committee decided we would put together "virtual" Angel Trees to give members another opportunity to give back to the local, national and international communities this holiday. Three options have been chosen for this year's trees...Casa San Jose, The Veterans Leadership Program and Hekima Place. If you would like to know more about each organization we have included a link to their websites for your convenience.
To make a donation, simply go to the attached bowerhillchurch link below and find the complete list of giving opportunities. Select the item you would like to donate and place your name next to that item. (if you prefer to remain anonymous, simply put that in the line where others have placed their names) Then, simply follow the instructions for getting the items back to the church office. Pay special attention to the dates requested as we will need to get the items to the various agencies in a timely fashion. You can also access the list by going to the the church website and look for the link under Featured News.
