Serve Freely This Holiday Season

Whether with your family or even as a small group, take the time this holiday season to think about others and find ways to serve the Gospel in word and in deed! Here are some ideas...

• Donate items or pack a shoebox for kids in need around the world

through Operation Christmas Child (due November 13).

• Serve together at Our Father’s Storehouse Thanksgiving Outreach

(Tuesday, November 22).

• Join a Disaster Relief Team to serve our friends and neighbors in

Southwest Florida.

• Collect items (toiletries, coats, socks, underwear, etc.) for one of our

local homeless shelters (Grace Mission, Hope Community, the Shelter,

City Walk).

• Serve a meal to our friends at one of our ministry partners (Making

Miracles Group Home, Chelsea House, Hope House, Hope Community).

• Host a neighborhood Christmas Block Party to meet your neighbors and

interact with them.

• Go Christmas caroling in your neighborhood or at one of our assisted

living or retirement communities.

• Bake and decorate Christmas cookies and share them with your

neighbors or some of our homebound members.

• Sponsor and support a child globally through Hope Street, World Vision,

or Compassion International.

• Invite a co-worker, friend, or neighbor to our Christmas Eve Services

at 3pm, 5pm or 7pm.
