This year we have been given the opportunity to support a variety of outreach and volunteer programs this Christmas season. To find out how you can help serve our community and support those in need, please refer to the outreach programs listed below.
Operation Christmas Child uses gift-filled shoe boxes to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. This year we will begin collecting shoe boxes on Sunday, November 3rd, and the boxes will need to be packed and returned to the church by Sunday, November 17th. Please contact Nancy Hyatt at email@example.com with any questions.
This year Christ Church has been given the opportunity to provide new jackets, hats, and gloves to children in need at Park Creek Elementary. You can pick a jacket off the board in the narthex; this jacket represents a specific child with their gender and size. Please return the purchased items with your tag from the board by Sunday, November 17th. Please contact Lindsay Lofty at Lindsay.firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
Believe Greater Dalton’s Community Pride team is thrilled to be sponsoring Gratefull Dalton on Monday, November 25th from 11:30am-1:30pm on Hamilton Street in front of Burr Park. Gratefull is a free city-wide Thanksgiving meal, where everyone is invited to eat together at one long table in the middle of the street.
Through Gratefull we are removing barriers and bringing people together from across social boundaries simply to get to know each other and build understanding. In order to build a city that is an honest reflection of its residents, everyone should be invited to the table. So there is no fee, no expectations and no agenda. Volunteers are needed to set up, serve, clean up, and everything in between. Making this happen is going to take a village, so if you are willing to help out, please CLICK HERE to sign up!
Sharing is Caring is our community’s project designed to provide Christmas for children in Whitfield County who are living in poverty or whose family’s circumstances might prevent them from receiving Christmas gifts. In order to provide the community with clothes, toys, and common household items, we will be taking monetary donations until Sunday, December 15th. You can make checks payable to ChristChurch Presbyterian and write ‘Sharing is Caring’ in the memo line. For more information, please contact Lin O’Neill (email@example.com) or Tammy Keen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of prisoners and their families with the love of Christ. The Rec Place will be placing an angel tree in the coffee shop at the end of November. Suggested gifts and clothing sizes will be listed on the angels which can be pulled from the tree beginning Sunday, December 1st and ending Sunday, December 22nd. One clothing item and one toy are requested for each child and the price range for each is $20-30.
