christmas shoppe

saturday, december 16, 9am-1pm, highland center gym, 520 olive st., shreveport

There are other Highland churches now involved in the Christmas Shoppe which will make it bigger and better this year!  Because of this, we are now calling it the "Highland Christmas Shoppe.”  We still need lots of gifts and volunteers for the day.  We are excited about these new partnerships and how this will help the Shoppe expand and offer more to our neighbors and friends this Christmas.  Please continue to bring items for the Christmas Shoppe to the boxes around the church, or online for gifts to be sent to Noel for the Shoppe.  Thanks so much for helping others to have a merry Christmas!
