Community Connections – Christmastime

Angel Tree Project – We get to partner with Upbring, the new LSS, once again on the Angel Tree Project. This is a tradition at Christ where are given the chance to buy Angel Tree gifts for the children served by Upbring living in foster homes. During November, if you are interested in sponsoring a child and buying him or her a gift or two from their wish list, please take an ornament from the Christmas tree in the narthex – groups can even form to collectively buy a more expensive gift for a child.

Please be sure to write on the Angel Tree Ornament sheet 1) your name and contact information 2) the names and ages of the children you signed up to sponsor. Please bring all gifts in plastic bags (w/ ornaments attached) to Church and set under the Christmas tree by Sunday, December 2. Please contact Jordan with questions. Thanks for your support!

Operation Blue Santa – On Wednesday, November 28, from 6:30-8:00 pm, we have a group opportunity to help with Austin Police Operation Blue Santa (4101 S Industrial Dr #260, Austin, Texas, 78744). Shifts at Santa’s Workshop involve wrapping presents, sorting toys, and preparing packages for families. No children under 6 years old. Only 20 volunteer spots available. When we are finished with this service project those who would like to will grab a bite to eat somewhere together. Please contact Jordan, or Pastor John, for details, and if you are able to commit to serving during that day/time to serve.
