Christmas Season Service Opportunities

Nov 07, 2019

Our Domestic Outreach team has compiled a list of ways we can serve our neighbors during Advent, including everything from ringing a kettle bell for the Salvation Army and wrapping books for students at Berclair to helping sort toys at Neighborhood Christian Centers. 

View the full list of opportunities here.

One unique opportunity is the Red Tub project coordinated by our ministry partners at the Memphis Family Connection Center. When you take a "red tub," you commit to spend a total of $250 — spend $125 to fill the tub with gifts on a child's wish list and write a check for $125 to Memphis Family Connection Center to provide counseling, support, and training for local adoptive and foster families. 

If you'd like to participate, pick up a “red tub“ in the Connector outside the Sanctuary on November 17 or 24 (between the morning services or before evening worship) and help make Christmas special to children in the foster care community.

Red tubs should be returned by December 8. Email Jennifer Thompson with questions.
