For December we encourage you to consider a gift through the ELCA Good Gifts web site.

ELCA Good Gifts, the giving catalog of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, lifts up more than 65 gift ideas filled with meaning and love. ELCA Good Gifts are a special way you can help make a significant impact on the mission and ministries of our church while giving a gift to a friend, pastor, teacher, neighbor or other loved one. You can give fruit tree seedlings, a pig, a water pump, immunizations, school supplies and numerous other gifts.

The ELCA Good Gifts catalog can also be a great way to help teach your children that giving to others is an important part of the holiday season. Go through the catalog with them and see, for example, that a $10 donation is enough to provide a flock of chicks to an impoverished family. Eggs produced by the chickens provide food and a source of income.  Donations like this can be made in honor of a child's friend, teacher or relative—and you can send a gift acknowledgement card by e-mail or print one out on your computer.
