Christmas Joy Party: December 14th

The Christmas Joy Party is our largest all church Missions Outreach of the year. We need your assistance and would love for you to be a part of this exciting ministry to provide approximately 30 - 35 families with their Christmas. Families that could use some help around the holidays apply to be a part of this event.

Families come Saturday, December 14th from 11:30 am - 1:30 pm. Each family and their sponsors (Church volunteers) eat lunch together. Afterwards, the children get to meet Santa, get a picture taken with him, make crafts, and play games. While the children are occupied, the parent(s) receive (1) $50 gift card to HEB for food (Provided by Food Pantry Funds), (1) $25 gift card from a shoe store, a specific number of $50 Walmart gift cards (One card per family member; a family of four receives 4 gift cards), and a couple of new toys for young children. The Walmart gift cards give the parent(s) the opportunity to purchase specific gifts for their children as well as the flexibility to purchase gas for their car, groceries, household items, etc. 

We are also looking for volunteers to help make this event happen. To volunteer or for more details, contact: Rev. Sam McRae at sam@friendswoodmethodist.org
