Caring & Sharing 2019
At Christ Church, we are privileged once again to be able to bring hope to so many through the Ministry of Caring and Sharing. Our recipients are referred by local social agencies in hope that we can share our love with them. We provide each person with a stocking and a gift(s). Each family receives food vouchers or a food hamper.
Consider widening your circle and invite over folks to participate. We have found over the years that workmates, teammates classmates, etc. have been wonderfully supportive of this ministry.
GIFTS: Each family provides a wish list for gift suggestions to assist with the shopping
STOCKINGS: The stocking will include an assortment of socks underwear, toiletries and treats PLUS a small gift from their wish list.
FOOD: Each family will receive food vouchers or a food hamper with items for a festive Christmas dinner and a week’s meals.
