Fathers can be the hardest to shop for when gift time comes around. This Father’s Day we are encouraging gifts to be used by fathers across the globe as an alternative to the usual standby tie or some other gift item you might purchase. An alternative gift is a perfect way to let the men in your life know they are appreciated.
Get started now by selecting the gifts you wish to symbolically present, using the form below. Note how many of each you wish to purchase, complete the recognition section as to whether your gift is in “honor of” or in “memory of,” and then Donate Online. Place the check and the order form in the offering plate or deliver to the church office. The items “purchased” will support the on-going work of Church World Service, a United Methodist–related international ministry, to families across the globe in need of a helping hand as they seek solutions to their own challenges.
The deadline for “Alternative Gifts for Father’s Day” is 12:00 noon on Monday, June 13. Recognition of your gift(s) will be in the bulletin insert on Father’s Day, June 19. If you would like to offer fathers across the globe hope for a better tomorrow, fill out the form below or contact Tami Kellberg at email@example.com or 512-478-5684 (ext. 226).
