Christmas Giving Opportunities
Blessing those in need during the Christmas season is a wonderful way to live out our faith by being the light in a dark world. There are three opportunities at Grace for you and your family to bless people in need during the holidays -- not only overseas, but right in our own communities. Collection for all three opportunities begins November 5. You can visit our Connection Hallway to grab informational flyers, or you can click on the links provided below:
Operation Christmas Child: Every year, our church partners with Samaritan Ministries to provide hundreds of shoebox gifts for needy children all over the world. This year, Grace is a regional drop-off center, November 13-20. To see the drop-off times, click HERE. To find out more about how to pack a shoebox or gift suggestions, visit Samaritan Ministries at this link. Please note that toothpaste and candy are no longer allowed in shoeboxes due to customs regulations. A $9 donation per shoebox is needed to cover shipping and ministry expenses.
Christmas Care Boxes: Bless the homeless population right in our own community with a care box full of basic items. Click HERE for a list of suggested items. The collection deadline for care boxes is Sunday, December 10.
Our Father's Table - Long Johns: Bless the homeless population in Marlborough by keeping them warm. Click HERE for information on needed donations. The collection deadline for long johns is Sunday, December 17.
