Holiday Community Service Projects & Activities
Give Love at Christmas- Children’s Ministry
The Children Ministry will be purchasing a toy chest and filling it with goodies for the pediatric ward at SouthsideRegionalMedicalCenter. We will be collecting donations of toys and money toward this effort and would like everyone interested in participating to contact a member of the children/youth ministries for details on how they can help.
Holiday Cheer-Children’s Ministry
We are encouraging our children to bring joy to others this year by taking a group of the youth to sing Christmas carols to the seniors at the Chippendale Retirement Home on Sunday, December 1st after the worship service. In order to determine if transportation is required, we need interested young people to sign up with a member of the Children’s ministry in the Fellowship Hall after the service.
