Christmas JOY Party
Time Commitment: 2nd Saturday December
Coordinator: Laura Ewing
This is our largest all church Missions Outreach of the year. Families apply to be a part of this event. Families come at midday and they and their sponsors eat lunch together and following that the children get to meet Santa and receive a picture taken with him, followed by making crafts. While the children are occupied the parents choose items at no charge from gently used items donated by church members. After those items are selected the parent(s) load the items in their car along with a full Christmas meal. Each member of the family also receives Christmas items that they want; these items are noted on the application. It is important to note that these items do not have a “From” on the tag as it is a gift from the parent(s) to their child.
