Share the Joy — Guardian ad Litem Toy and Gift Campaign: Now through December 11th

The Hyde Park Missions Ministry is partnering again with Guardian ad Litem to provide Christmas gifts for children served by them. These children range from infancy through age 18. We are also asking for pizza and fast food gift cards that teens can use for experiences with their peers, and foster parents can provide treats for their GAL child and family.
Suggestions for toys based on GAL input include:
Scout by Leap Frog
Fisher Price Plush Baby toy puppy
Dolls — of many colors, ages etc.
Cars and Trucks – Big ones are really popular!
Science kits and Arts and  Craft kits
Crayola Light board
Lego Kits

Since 1980, GAL has served abused, abandoned and neglected children who are supervised by the Child Dependency Court.  The GAL ensures that the best interests and needs of the child are identified and addressed in the court and community.

Robin Boelzner Shick
September 28, 1953 – November 1, 2022

It is with deep sorrow and thanksgiving to God that we let you know that Robin Shick has now been released from her suffering and is now in glory with her Savior.

It goes without saying that the Shick family has made a lasting impact upon Hyde Park Presbyterian with their service of 30 years of ministry as pastor and family. Being the spouse of a pastor is its own special ministry and one clearly worthy of great gratitude and praise. Robin also served diligently in the music ministry, both in singing and playing the handbells.

Please pray for God’s comfort to dwell richly with Ken and his three sons Matt, Jon and Spencer, and their families.
