We dedicate our Giving Tree to the children at Shiners Hospital in Boston. Shriners is a 30-bed pediatric burn hospital providing acute, reconstructive, and rehabilitative care.
This past weekend, our Junior Youth Group experienced their first overnight at the church. While they each came with their own apprehensions, I found that they quickly overcame any concern.
The Christmas season can be a difficult time, especially for those who are grieving, lonely, or have difficult memories of this time of year.
