Christmas Outreach

Christmas is just around the corner!  We will begin collecting for our Christmas outreach ministry this coming Sunday.  This year will look a little different.  This year we will be adopting two families from Sacred Heart Southern Mission and collecting money for the Olive Branch Food Pantry. 

The Food Pantry will be giving families a ham and a gift card to purchase sides to go along with the ham for Christmas meals.  We will be taking up money to help provide the Christmas meals for local families.  You may designate your gift for the Food Pantry and place it in the offering plate.

We will adopt two families this year from a local organization.  The Deacons will be purchasing gifts for the children and we will give them gift baskets filled with non perishable food items and hygiene and cleaning supplies.  You may also make a monetary donation for the purchase of the children’s gifts.  

The congregation is asked to provide items for the gift baskets.  Items can be any non perishable food items, cleaning supplies, and hygiene items.  Here are a few ideas of items for the baskets.
