The Christmas season is such a wonderful time to remember Jesus’ birth and also it is a great opportunity to carry out Jesus’ commandment to love one another and to care for those less fortunate.
We want to be of service this Christmas, and one way we can do this is through our Hamper drive. Please consider being a part of our Christmas Hamper ministry this year.
This is a great serving opportunity to engage in on your own, with your family or with friends.
We want to bless those families in our church and in our community who are in need at this time.
