Our annual “Operation Christmas Tree” outreach has started. The Christmas tree in the foyer will contain ornaments that describe gifts for those less fortunate in our community. We are helping four families this Christmas. Three are from Northwestern Schools and one is from Springfield Christian. We want their Christmas to be brighter and to let them know that God loves them, no strings attached. Just pick one or several ornaments off the tree and get the gift mentioned on it. Thanks for your generosity!
This is one of the highlights of the year! We will begin the evening with a delicious dinner. The church will provide all the meat, drinks, and table service. Please bring a side dish and dessert to share. After dinner, we will sing Christmas carols, have special music and read the Christmas story. Piano stylings will be provided by Warren Banks. At the end of the evening we will have a special visit from Santa, who will hand out gifts to all the kids. This is an Outreach Event, so plan now to bring family and friends with you. I can’t wait!
We will be taking a special love offering for a pastoral family in our district that is struggling this Christmas.
