There are several ways you can help, both with gift cards and personal shopping. We are hosting drives for the following organizations. Signups will take place online - please use the button below to access our SignUp Genius. Members of the World Service Team will also be onsite after worship service on Nov 14, 21, and 28 to help those needing assistance.

Operation Christmas Joy
We will again participate in Bethany Christian Services’ Operation Christmas Joy drive, which provides $25 gift cards to meet the Christmas wish lists of children/teens in emergency foster care statewide. BCS is an organization that helps children and families in crisis find adoptive and foster families, short-term-crisis care, and so much more. Visit the Christmas Gift Drive table to purchase these gift cards.
Family Promise Children
Family Promise has now moved to a new facility and are currently housing approximately 39 children and their families, almost double what they used to be able to accommodate. Each child has 1 special item on their Christmas list. Santa, Mrs. Claus, and members of the World Service team will deliver these gifts in person on December 13th.
Crestwood Home Gift Drive
Every year Crestwood Nursing Home in Milford provides us with a Christmas gift wish list put together by their residents. For many of these seniors, these will be the only gifts they receive. Please consider choosing a resident and bring them some Christmas cheer this Advent season.
