Adopted Family | Christmas 2018

“It is more blessed to give than to receive."
- Jesus    Acts 20:35


Hello, HermNaz! We have a family to give to & show love towards this Christmas season!  They are from our Adopted School: Rocky Heights Elementary.

The Mom is a single mother & waitress in town with two children.  The son is age 9 and the daughter is age 6 (daughter has special needs with limited use of her hands and wears leg braces).  They live in a camp trailer and  have one bed; the children each sleep in a recliner.  There is not space or storage for extra items.  Thus, we are focusing mostly on gifts of family experiences.

This year will be a bit different for us.  We will focus mostly on gift cards for groceries, Walmart, Amazon.com, local hotels with pools, and movie theatre tickets.  They do not have money to go out and do anything “extra,” so these gifts will mean the world.  A few shoes, clothing, and toy items are also on the Item Tags to get.

This is an opportunity to come together as a church family to love on this family in the community!
 

Collecting gifts at church: through December 23rd

Please take an Item Tag and sign up in the main entry, and return it with your gift to the church by December 23rd.

This is going to be an amazing experience and Christmas. Thank you!
