It’s time to collect Christmas gifts for children in need! Moms and dads come to the Riverside office of Lutheran Social Services looking for gifts for their children. We’re collecting gifts for children of all ages. Please take a tag from the tree in the narthex and buy a gift, then bring it to church. Please leave the gift unwrapped.
