Christ the Lord Congregation
It has been a long-standing tradition that the Sunday School sponsors an annual Christmas gift collection for needy children in Mexico served by the WELS Mission to the Children. Even though we are not currently having Sunday School, the opportunity for our congregation to donate Christmas gifts for Mexico is still available this year. These gifts will be delivered to small villages in Northern Mexico, where pastors and volunteers share the good news of Jesus’ birth with the children and their families.
If you would like to donate a gift for one or more needy children, you can choose the child’s name(s) that you will donate a gift for. Please make a note of the child’s name, age, and number, both so that you can purchase an age appropriate gift, but also so that you can put the name and number on the wrapped gift. The gifts should be new, and about $10-$12 in cost. More detailed gift guidelines can be found on the web page with the online signup. Please be sure to read over the gift guidelines before you purchase a gift.
The gift collection will run until Sunday, November 29 at 1030 am. Gifts may be placed in a bin in the church hallway. We have been awarded a grant from Thrivent to help defray some of the costs associated with the gift collection and shipping.We would be happy to accept cash donations toward a gift for a child if you would prefer not to purchase one yourself. Checks can be made out to Christ the Lord but should be designated for the Christmas gift collection, and can be placed in the small box next to the gift collection bin in the church hallway. If you have any questions about this gift collection, or if you need assistance, please contact Vickie Walther at [email protected] or 262-789-7154.
