Decorating the Church for Christmas

We will be decorating the Church for Christmas on Saturday, December 1st, at 9:00am.  If you have a couple hours to spare, we would love your help. All the boxes will already be in the sanctuary. We really need the help, so please consider coming to help beautify the church.

Christmas Gifting with Heart

Once again this Christmas season, The Outreach Council is offering you the opportunity to give from the heart with our Alternative Giving Program. You can give a donation to any of the eight mission organizations displayed at our Outreach Table in the narthex. In return, you will get a card to give to a friend or loved one stating that you have given a donation in their honor to the organization you chose. The card will also give a summary of the mission’s focus. A small ornament representing the organization will also be included. The eight mission organizations featured this Christmas are:

Local National International
  • Urban Impact
  • The BOB Project
  • Lost and Found Pharmacy
  • Red Bird Mission,
  • Habitat for Humanity
  • Heifer Project International
  • United Methodist Global Health Advance

The Outreach Table will be in the narthex all four Sundays in Advent, starting Sunday, December 2.

Operation Christmas Child

It’s that time again! The deadline for Operation Christmas Child quickly approaches. If you’d like to pack you own shoebox to send to child in need, here are some guidelines:

  • Start with a larger item (doll, ball and pump, outfit, etc.) and then fill the shoebox in with smaller things.
  • Don’t forget about personal hygiene items, craft supplies, clothing, and batteries for toys that need them!
  • You can include a note to your child.
  • Please don’t pack food, liquid items (lip gloss, filled balls, etc.), realistic gun toys, realistic camouflage, etc.

You may place your box in the narthex. Don’t forget to fill out a label with the gender/age of the child your box is for. You’ll find the labels in the narthex as well. The last day to drop off a filled shoebox is November 11th.
