Many thanks to everyone who donated to the Desert Southwest Conference’s Sidewalk Sunday School Christmas Project. Every year, at least 20 churches in the conference donate this project. This year, 700 bags, 75 from PVUMC, were collected and will be distributed to the mobile sites during December. Children age 3-12 receive gift bags filled with toys and other goodies and teens receive gift cards. Brenda Smith, PVUMC’s children’s ministries director, and Mimi Carroll, who has been teaching in our Sunday School program with her husband, Gene, for years, both went to the Conference office to organize and help prepare the bags for distribution. Bev Secrist, the project director, is grateful to everyone who donates and volunteers for this project that brings smiles to hundreds of children.
