The youth ministry of Freedom Church in Carson City will raise funds for its activities by selling Christmas trees in the Target shopping center on Topsy Lane.

The lot will be open 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Friday and 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

The "LIFT" Christmas Tree lot, in its third year but in a new location, is a non-profit run by volunteers and is the biggest fundraiser for the church youth ministry.

Volunteers also will provide free gift bags for all children who come to the tree lot, a photographer to take family photos, tree delivery service if needed, and free S'mores on Fridays. The lot is also the site for collecting stockings and stocking-stuffers to be given to students at Empire Elementary School.

Freedom Church is located at 3759 Highway 50 East #209 in Carson City. This year, church members are participating in an outreach program called "LIFT" with the goal this holiday season of feeding the hungry and blessing children of the community who are less fortunate.

Other LIFT projects include: A free gift-wrapping night 2-6 p.m. Dec. 12 at Freedom Church; a free Christmas dinner and movie will be shown on a big screen 7 p.m. Dec. 15; 200 Christmas stockings to be given to needy children in our community.

For more information, call the church at 720-9158.
