Help untrim the Christmas tree

As we do each year, we'll use our "Untrim the Christmas Tree" campaign to support the three missions listed below. The Christmas tree in the Commons area will have envelopes for donations hanging from its branches. Grab one, put your name (and offering number, if available) on the envelope and then place your donation in the offering during the worship service. Here's how you can help:

Peacemakers Minnesota

To help create a more peaceful world, the mission of Peacemakers Minnesota is to help schools to be safer places, free from bullying and harassment, and to help children learn positive relational skills like empathy, respect, cooperation, and how to resolve conflict peacefully.

Compatible Technology International

CTI is a nonprofit dedicated to ending global poverty by designing and distributing inventive farming tools that help women in African rural communities improve their food production, income and livelihoods.

Reclaim Mental Health Services

Reclaim's mission is to increase access to mental health support for GLBTQ youth so that they might reclaim their lives from oppression in all forms. The youth who seek services at Reclaim are between the ages of 12 and 26. The majority are underinsured, and many are unable to access insurance. None of the clients is refused treatment because of financial limitations.
