A Church Without Walls

Sidewalk Ministry Christmas Party – We need your help to make this Christmas complete!

Plans are in full swing for an amazing Christmas Party Saturday, Dec. 15th at Reed Park for our Sidewalk children and their families.  We are expecting about 180 this year, so we can use your help.  There are volunteer jobs the day of the party and also many tasks that need to take place before then.   If you would like to put a whole bunch of joy in your Christmas Season, look for the sign-up sheets after worship the next two Sundays to volunteer for some of the following:

Pray for the Sidewalk children and their families during this Christmas season and for all the Sidewalk Team as they plan the celebration (Actually, we can all do this.  You don’t have to sign up!)

Sort gifts into age groups at the church, the week prior to the party, Dec. 12th

Be a Santa Shopper the week before the party to fill in gaps in gifts donated by other Churches

Pick up and deliver gifts to the park with your vehicle the morning of Dec. 15th

Distribute gifts at the park Dec. 15th

Help set up and clean up at the park De. 15th

Be a registration helper at the park Dec. 15th

Provide a hot dish, side dish or Birthday cake for Jesus at the park Dec. 15th

Help organize donated food and serve food at the park Dec. 15th

Be an official photographer for the morning at the park Dec. 15th

Be a SHEPHERD the day of the party, and work where needed Dec. 15th

This year the filled gift bags and gift cards will be donated by Dove of the Desert and Dayspring United Methodist Churches and gift cards and baby quilts are coming from St. Matthew UMC’s United Methodist Women, several from Grace UMC have also donated for gifts and gifts cards.  This is truly a multi-church effort.  Our job is to make the day wonderfully filled with joy and goodwill, so the True Christmas Story will shine through to the children.
