  • Christmas Ministry

    Each year volunteers gather to buy gifts and groceries and pack and deliver packages to sponsored families. Youth and children of Advent also make gifts for each child and our quilting group makes each a family a special quilt. Volunteer opportunities and opportunities to support fundraisers for this ministry are available each holiday season.
