The pandemic has changed everything - our family functions are different, our jobs and schools are different, and our worship opportunities have had to change.
But one thing that remains unchanged is the plight of our neediest children. In fact, in many cases the plight is much worse, with unemployment and family crises on the upswing.
While our traditional White Gift ministry cannot happen as it has in the past, we have a new plan to support those families this year at the holidays. Our plan is to provide each child with a $50 gift card to a local store and a stocking (worth approx. $15). We hope to reach 160 local children.
How can you help?
While we aren't able to bring our gifts forward to be presented during the Pageant this year, there will be an opportunity for a symbolic blessing of the gifts on Dec. 13, 2020, during our Online Worship Service that premieres at 10 AM on YouTube.
The deadline for donations is December 3, 2020.
If you have questions, contact Ann Sabo, White Gift Ministry Team Leader or Rev. Ashley.
