For one day only, part of the Every Nation City Church becomes a very special shop where our families, past and present, can ‘shop’ for Holiday Gifts. The idea came to us a few years back when we saw how happy parents were to be able to give a gift, no matter how small, to their children.
On December 19th, the ‘store’ will be filled with brand new toys and gift cards for kids of all ages. Families will be greeted by volunteers who will whisk the children off to awesome holiday activities while parents can choose gifts for their kids, using their ‘snowflake dollars’. Gifts are wrapped and tagged, ready for Christmas morning. The children can also shop for their parents; a new feature this year. Gifts for parents include photo frames, PJs, wallets, travel mugs and tote bags. The children will then wrap the gifts and make greeting cards as well.
This store has been made possible by you, our friends and community, who always come together for our families, and judging by the miles of smiles in the aisles, our families are touched by your generosity and caring. If you find yourself wanting to contribute this year, it’s not too late! We are on the lookout for items for our outreach ministry and could really use rain ponchos, umbrellas, rain boots for men and women, lotion, socks, blankets and water resistant gloves.
On Christmas morning, we will take a moment to reflect on the many gifts we have received throughout the year and our thoughts will turn to each of you who have made another year of service possible. God Bless and Merry Christmas!
