Christmas House

DATE & TIME
Tuesday, December 12
8:00am - 6:00 pm
Overview

Seasons greetings!

This Christmas, we have the privilege of coming alongside families in need, serving them in an empowering way and helping them take next steps on their journey. On December 12th we will host our third annual Christmas House, a fun and festive shopping experience for parents facing financial challenges.

Families who have been prescreened will have the opportunity to purchase gifts for their children for a small fee, wrap the presents and enjoy holiday refreshments in community.

Imagine the sense of dignity and pride the parents will have knowing they were able to buy gifts for their children! Christmas House is an opportunity for parents not only to get presents for their children, but also to connect with our church body, our ministries and one another.

Want to help? Here’s how ...

GIVE GIFTS

Simply remove an information card from the Christmas House display in the Longwood foyer, starting November 18th, and purchase appropriate gifts for the child or children. Unwrapped gifts can be dropped off at the Christmas House display inside the main foyer anytime before December 8th.

GIVE YOUR TIME

We are in need of volunteers to help with setup on December 11th and during the shopping experience on December 12th. These volunteer task areas will include being inside the shopping experience, registration, personal shoppers, wrapping gifts, sorting/restocking gifts, refreshments, set-up and clean-up. To volunteer sign-up HERE!
