Poinsettia Delivery and Visits to Homebound


Share the message of Christmas joy with our homebound members. Gifts of poinsettias are available the Gathering Room and Mac Lobby. Pick one up and deliver it and a card from the children to one of our members who is no longer able to worship with us.  Cards with names and addresses of those will be available for you to make your selection. Thank you for sharing the spirit of care and love to these special members.

2018 Christmas Eve Offering

In Tanzania, one in nine children die before their fifth birthday, and one in fifteen do not make it through their first year. Lack of quality medical care is a major contributor to these deaths.

An estimated 34% of Tanzanian children are growth stunted due to chronic malnutrition, well above global averages. 

What is the solution?
