Christmas Giving Opportunities
Tis the Season…
The holiday season is a time of joy for many! Spending time with friends and family, shopping, decorating your home, making cookies, caroling, and so much more. However for some people, the holidays present a whole batch of stress, difficulties, or sorrow. Here at First Friends we offer a few opportunities for you to help out your neighbors and brothers and sisters in Christ.
This Year’s Opportunities:
Lighthouse Christmas Giving Tree
Since 1996 Canton Lighthouse Ministries has been ministering to youth and families in need. This holiday season, they are running “The Lighthouse Christmas Store.” We are asking our First Friends Family to help purchase Christmas gifts for families who are struggling to provide gifts for their children. Pick up an item tag at our Lighthouse Christmas Tree in the Worship Center Hallway. Please return the unwrapped gift(s) no later than December 5th.
Lighthouse Christmas Store
Consider serving at The Lighthouse Christmas Store on Saturday, December 7th. We need help with gift wrapping and the cash register. Click HERE to volunteer for The Lighthouse Christmas Store. Work shifts are December 7th from 9-11AM, 1-3PM, and 4-6PM.
Sock and Mitten Tree
Every year we donate hats, scarves, mittens, gloves and socks to the Salvation Army to distribute to those in need during the winter months. Beginning Sunday, November 17 through December 8, place your donated items on the tree in the hallway by the library.
Join us as we show our appreciation and support for our Evangelical Friends Missionaries and their projects this Christmas. During our Christmas Eve services, we will take a special offering that will support communities, businesses, medical needs, agriculture, Bibles, discipleship materials and much more. Consider being a blessing this Christmas to Evangelical Friends Missions. Visit www.friendsmission.com for more information.
