Jessy’s ToyboxMissions will be collecting toys for local hospitalized children in Rochester during the holidays with Jessy’s Toybox. There is an Amazon Wishlist to make shopping easier or for ideas. The toy box will be placed by the Christmas tree in the coffee lounge this year, and we will have little “elves” helping collect your donations during the Children’s Sermon on Dec 3 and on Dec 17, which will be the very last day to bring your donation.

Goodhue County Christmas ProjectThe Goodhue County Christmas Project is underway. This year Spring Garden is able to help support 2 families in the Cannon Falls area. Our congregation was VERY GENEROUS and offered to purchase everything on the families' wish lists! We are asking everyone to bring the purchased items to church on December 3rd or 10th. All items should be unwrapped and with the item tag attached to it. For a list of the items still needed or to ask any questions, please contact Katie Sjoblom (507-302-9167, email@example.com). Thank you for your support!
