Church & Society
February Collection Drive
During the month of February, our congregation will be collecting much-needed supplies for the McLean/Falls Church Children’s Center.
The McLean/ Falls Church Children’s Center provides daycare and a quality early childhood education to low-income families. This enables those living in poverty to get jobs and have a safe place to leave their children. It also gives these often under-served children the opportunity to prepare for Kindergarten.

Please place all donated items in the bins located inside the entryway doors to the church or in the bins in the Fellowship Lobby. Thank you!
Crafts for a Cause is busy these days making warm fleece blankets and hats for local shelters and Christ House, as well as fleece hats for cancer patients at Fair Oaks Hospital. This is in addition to the group’s ongoing work providing comfort pillows, surgery dolls and lap blankets for hospital patients, and dresses for needy girls in Africa.
You can join in this fun and vital ministry by attending one of this month’s work sessions: Mon., Feb. 6 and Mon., Feb. 20 from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 124. All adults are welcome; instructions provided and no crafts skills required.
The Holiday Bazaar before Christmas allowed the crafts group to raise $3,000, which will fund the supplies for all the comfort items we make. In addition, we will be making a donation to Trinity’s missions in Honduras. Thanks to everyone who shopped at the Bazaar!
