Socks and Mittens Collections
Parents, many times we get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of Christmas celebration we forget there are many families in our metro area that need warm clothing for the winter months. So, as you shop, toss in a package of new socks, gloves, mittens, scarves, and/or new underwear.
For birth - 6th grade, encourage your child to bring those items as part of the Christmas mission projects for both the Preschool and Children's Ministries, and place in the manger located in the reception area on the first floor of the Children’s Wing.
Collections began on Sunday, November 25, and will conclude with the Happy Birthday Jesus celebration parties on Sunday, December 23. Happy Birthday Jesus parties are geared to help all boys and girls remember the reason we celebrate Christmas - it is not about the presents they will receive, but the greatest gift our Father gave to us through Jesus. As you celebrate this month, focus on the reason for our celebrations.
