A special ministry to local families at Christmas time
At Christmas, we participate on a gift drive for local families that are unable to afford Christmas presents. The First Stars mission gathers names of local school children, along with their clothing and toy gift ideas. Our volunteers make “stars” with the student information and our members select one or more stars and purchase the requested items. The wrapped gifts are returned to the church and our hard-working 'elves' organize and distribute the gifts to the students at schools, during the week before Christmas.
This mission truly captures the meaning of Christmas and spreads Christ's love to children and their families in need. First Stars is a wonderful abd very intensive labor mission that requires many 'elves' (volunteers) during a very hectic time of year.
If you are interested in helping to bring special joy to some hard-hit local families and would llike more information about how you can be a blessing this Christmas througn our First Stars program, please contact Val Stephenson at firstname.lastname@example.org or sign-up online by filling out the Volunteer Form.
