Each month we partner with a local non-profit to collect items that help them serve our community.
The Featured Community Partner for the month of December is Christian Heritage.
This Christmas season we have the opportunity of blessing vulnerable families in our community with Christmas gifts through our Giving Tree program. This year we are partnering with Christian Heritage to help provide gifts and experiences for children in foster care as well as families in their Families Together Program. The children range in age from toddlers to teens and we'd love to brighten their Christmas with these gifts picked specifically for them. There are grocery and gas gift cards as well as household necessities to serve as an extra blessing for the families.
Please visit one of the Giving Trees in the back of the Worship Center beginning November 19th, pick an ornament, sign it out using the number in the lower right corner, purchase the item listed and bring the unwrapped item to the church with the ornament attached by December 13th.
You can drop off your donations in the bin outside of the office. If you prefer that we do the shopping for you, can give financially HERE.
Please mark your donation Featured Community Partner.
Thank you for your generosity!
