“Giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.” (Kathy Calvin, President of The United Nations Foundation)
This year for Christmas, you can make a difference by giving to mission organizations in honor or memory of someone through the Outreach Alternative Giving Program.
The Outreach Council has chosen eight mission organizations as the focus of our Christmas giving:
- Local organizations: Jeremiah’s Place, The Blessing Board, and Lost and Found Pharmacy
- National organizations: Habitat for Humanity, Red Bird Mission, and UMCOR’s Louisiana Disaster Relief
- International organizations: Heifer Project International, and The Nyadire Zimbabwe United Methodist Partnership
Visit the Outreach Table in the narthex any Sunday in Advent (November 27, December 4, 11, 18). Brochures will be available which describe each organization and give a web address for more information. You can honor a family member, friend, teacher, or coworker by giving a donation in their name. When you give a donation, you will receive an envelope to give to the person you wish to honor. The envelope will contain a card describing the mission organization and an ornament representative of that mission’s focus.
This Christmas, give a gift that gives back to help our world!
