The Outreach Commission wants to continue our long tradition of giving Christmas gifts to the children of Epiphany Lutheran & Episcopal Church, our mission in Marina. On Christmas Eve each child receives a box containing clothing, toys, art supplies, and candy; last year over one hundred children were served.

We’re asking you to help by giving gifts appropriate for children ranging from infants to about age twelve. They have suggested clothing (sweaters, sweatshirts/pants, caps, mittens, etc.), toys, or gift cards (not to exceed $25). Please do not gift wrap; Father Jon and his staff will do that. If you want to participate but cannot shop, the Outreach Commission will accept cash donations and shop for you.

Beginning November 25, there will be red and green boxes in the back of the church for your gifts, or you can leave them in the church office. We’d like to have the gifts by December 16. Thank you!
