Secret Pen Pals
This popular program runs from the fall to June. A senior is matched with a child/youth and they correspond with each other using a code name, leaving their notes/cards in a box at the back of the church.
A senior is matched with another member of the congregation. The visitor sees their match friend and perhaps takes them out for coffee or stays and plays a game of crib....the activity depends on the individuals and their interests. We ask that the visitor sees their match friend at least once a month.
This is your opportunity to have some fun, feel great about what you're doing and make someone else feel very cared for and special. Sign up for being a Secret Santa. For the month of December, you will be given the name of someone with whom you can participate. (or if you have someone special in mind, you can ask to be paired up with that person) You drop off little gifts, cards, writings with kind words or perhaps some home made treats throughout December. You can do the knock and run thing, leaving your "something special" on the doorstep. You can be creative....whatever works for you.
