Each Year we are given the opportunity to help those in need have a Merry Christmas. We have been given the names of families who, without us, would probably have no Christmas presents at all. Before Black Friday, in the back of the church, there will be a number of angels. These angels have a name and a wish for a present. The requests on the back of the angels are suggestions only. You may use your own judgment except for the food requests. Please take one or more angles and help provide these people with a Merry Christmas.
Attached to each angel is a Name Tag and tracking slip. When you take an angel, please fill out the tracking slip with the Angel #, your name, and telephone # and place it in the provided box. This will help us to reach you in case your gift has not been returned.
When you return your gift please wrap it and attach the provided gift tag that came with your Angel. It is very important that you use the provided gift tag. If you have questions please reach out to Caryn March.
Not everyone is filled with excitement and merriment during this holiday season. Sometimes, while the stores are filled with Christmas Carols and the world around us is decorated with lights and glowing colors and some homes are filled with laughter and parties there are people who are hurting or facing troubled times. Hurt, pain and sorrow come in both physical and emotional ways. This season, we want to reach out to those who may not be feeling like it is a Merry Christmas or may not be having a Happy Holiday Season.
This Blue Christmas Service offers a way for people to acknowledge and express their real feelings in a safe and non-judgmental place. There will be quiet music, prayer time and comforting words from the Holy Bible. Although there is sadness and grief, there is always hope and healing that can be experienced as we are surrounded by the compassionate love of God.
Come let us share in the truth of Immanuel – God with us!
