Advent Giving

God is the creator and giver of everything — all things come from his loving care and generosity. As children of God, he allows us to participate in the giving.

We can see the needs of those around us and be an active part of God’s plan to provide for them. The joy that we receive is better than any gift! What will you give this Christmas?

How to Give: Drop items off at the Advent Giving display in the church foyer during the month of December or bring them to the church office Monday – Friday. Some items have specific due dates, so please read carefully!
