Christmas Gift Drives 2023
The Christmas season is just around the corner and the World Service team is again partnering with two organizations to help ensure that all in our community experience the joy of the holidays. As you can see below, there is a way for everyone to participate, and a wide variety of those to support.
We will again be signing up online, using SignUp Genius. There will still be a “Giving Tree” at the church, but the stars will have instructions on how to use the signup tool. We will also have members of the team available after in-person worship on November 19, 26, and December 3 to answer questions and help those that may need assistance.
- Nov 19th – Dec 3rd: Dates to sign up for gifts using SignUp Genius online tool
- Nov 19th, 26th, Dec 9th: Members of the World Service Team will be available after in-person worship to help church members signup
- Dec 10th: Deadline to return gifts to church
Gifts Due back December 10th.
Gift Wrapping & Return Information:
Crestwood: gifts should be returned unwrapped in a gift bag, with the name of the resident clearly visible on the bag, and gift wrap included.
Family Promise: gifts should be wrapped and returned with a tag with the name/age of the child.
Family Promise Children
Family Promise has now moved to a new facility and are currently housing approximately 40 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 18th.
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 to a resident that speaks to your heart.
