Caring & Sharing 2019
2022 Christmas Caring & Sharing Launches the 1st Sunday of Advent | November 27, 2022
We are privileged once again to be able to bring hope to so many through the annual Caring & Sharing ministry. Working in partnership with local ministries, this year we have committed to:
85 Children’s pajamas
30 Dads’ Christmas Gifts
Full Christmas (stockings, presents, food) for approximately 15 people
Full Christmas (stockings, presents, food) for approximately 20 people/6 families
The last couple of years approximately $10,000 has flowed through this ministry. Needs inevitably exceed what we have committed to above. But with God’s good grace, working through us, we have been able to meet the needs time and time again. It is always a blessing to see so many people take part in this ministry initiative.

Christmas Food Hampers
For our local families, we are providing food hampers. With the increased cost of food which we are feeling, it is felt even more acutely by those with limited means. Below is a list of shelf staples ~ we will do the fresh shopping (yes financial contributions are welcome!) Let’s share our abundance and help those within our community that are less fortunate.
Drop-Off Dates & Times

We are so grateful to those who have generously provided for Caring and Sharing in the past and are just as hopeful this year when the need is even greater.
Why not ask your family, friends and neighbours if they would like to get involved? Compassion and generosity go hand in hand.
