Yep, we're still here!

Coming of off a very successful school-supply campaign through which every student at Satanta Elementary School was given a kit complete with all the supplies needed for the school year, the 21st Time has shifted its efforts to Christmas giving. The class’s annual Christmas Angel campaign will begin this year at the Satanta United Methodist Women’s fall bazaar on Friday, November 8th. At the bazaar (and in the narthex after that) church and community members will be encouraged to pick up an ornament bearing the name of an underprivileged Satanta child. For children in grades 5-12, the 21st Time has purchased long-sleeve Satanta t-shirts from the SHS freshmen class at a cost of $20 each. That means that 39 of these ornaments will bear the words “t-shirt” donation. All other ornaments will be for children 4th grade and under and will include the child’s gender and age. Checks for t-shirts can be made out to the 21st Time—SUMC; all other gifts can be dropped off at the church by Sunday, December 15. Please place your gift in gift bag topped with tissue paper and paperclip the ornament representing the child for whom it is intended onto the front of the bag. In conjunction with this project, the 21st Time class will be selling Christmas candies (including homemade peanut brittle) and other goodies in the narthex on the four Sundays leading up to Christmas. These funds will be used to help defray the cost of the Christmas Angel campaign. Please help us share the joy of Christmas with a child in need.
