WHITE GIFT SUNDAY
For many years now, just before Christmas, it has
been our custom to celebrate “White Gift Sunday.”
Members of the church family pick up “tags” off the giving
tree, purchase the gifts listed and then bring them to
worship as we celebrate the gift of the Christ child. Our
children stage the nativity. The gifts are shared at the
manger and then delivered to homes where there is need
within our church and the community..
Each year, our church collects items and packages them up
into shoe boxes in support of Operation Christmas Child
through the organization, Samaritan's Purse. Last year alone,
the Lord opened doors for Operation Christmas Child teams
to distribute more than 10 million shoe box gifts to boys and
girls worldwide.   Monetary donations ($9.00 per box) are also
critical to help transport and deliver each shoe box gift to a
child in need.   The shoe boxes are filled with basics: pencils
and paper, crayons,
small toys and
stuffed animals,
toiletries and
wash clothes,
socks, hats, etc.
They are sent out
in November so
that they arrive in
time for Christmas
for a deserving child.
