This service of preparing the church sanctuary for the season includes the hanging of wreaths and garland, the procession of poinsettias, trimming the Chrismon tree, singing carols, and bringing “White Christmas” gifts for the community. The annual reception follows in the Atrium and the Commons.
White Christmas Food Ministry
For many decades, our church has collected food gifts to help create meals for area families in need during the Christmas season. This sharing of love is known as our White Christmas ministry. We hope you can be a part of this traditional ministry by securing the food items according to the Bible Study Class assignments below. We will begin collecting food gifts during the Hanging of the Green service on Sunday evening December 2 and will continue until the delivery on Sunday December 16. This year our goal is to prepare and deliver 85 food gift packages to neighbors in our community. Two special notes. One is that some food items have changed this year. The other is that we are asking some class members for $5 cash instead of Ingles Cards to increase our purchasing options. If you are not in a Bible Study class choose any item(s) from the list.
