Operation Reindeer

operation_reindeer_bannerFirst Lutheran will again participate in Operation Reindeer.

Gifts should be new, unboxed and unwrapped.   We share gifts with Torrence State Hospital for Christmas.  The residents of Torrence are not able to go Christmas shopping themselves so these gifts are very meaningful to them.  Please bring them to the church office by Sunday, December 4. Thank you!
