Directions will be available at church on Sunday OR by e-mail from Amy at amy@esanthony.com.

The youth group is hand delivering Christmas cards from CCOTL members to other CCOTL members as a fundraiser for Pennies for Bella. Instead of giving the post office your .42 per card for stamps, give a per-card donation to the youth for Bella's fund, and they will deliver the cards at church for you.
