Calling all Elves!
We have five families who need sponsors for Christmas. Our church is in ministry with these families and without your help they will not be able to provide Christmas gifts for their family due to financial limitations.
When you volunteer to provide a family Christmas (individuals, friend groups, Sunday School classes, neighbors, and families welcome!), you’ll be given a shopping list for a $25 – $30 gift item for each family member, plus a few basic living necessities this family needs for a “family basket.” Most of these families have four to seven members each, including adults.
Christmas is such a joyful time of year for celebrating families and friends. By becoming part of reaching out to these families this year, you will be extending God’s love in a way that will warm your heart as it offers Christmas cheer to a neighbor whose financial situation causes them many challenges.
Time is growing short to make this Christmas giving opportunity your own — all shopping must be completed and delivered to the church no later than Monday December 22; be sure to contact Rev. Page Hines as soon as possible (and by Friday if you can!) to let her know you’re in — and to get all the information you’ll need about the family you will be helping.
Providing Christmas for five local families in need is just one of the opportunities in our First Church Christmas Giving Catalog.
