Giving Hope Christmas Outreach

Giving Hope Christmas Outreach 2021

Giving Hope is a Christmas Shopping Mall experience that gives families more than just a gift under the tree! This event provides each child in need with amazing gifts and a new winter coat. We also provide each family with a special gift bag including a family game, a Bible, a devotional, basic groceries, and more! Our mission is to share the love of Jesus through our hospitality, generosity, and inspiring words. Each adult patron will connect with our caring team during a wonderful brunch and hear a hope-filled message from Pastor Ethan as well. We hope you can play a part in this ministry!

Gift Patron Packets:  All packets have been sponsored! Thank you!

There are SO MANY ways to SERVE before and during this outreach event. Check out the list below and sign up to serve. We cannot wait to have you partner with us to SERVE!
