We’re so excited about our children’s special collection during this nativity season to benefit those in need. This year we will be collecting the children’s offerings during the months of November and December in support of Samaritan’s Purse Christian charity. The children will get to pick from a catalog of gifts they can send to those in need such as food for an orphan, clothing to keep a newborn warm, or an animal to help support an impoverished family. We’re reminding the kids (and ourselves) that although getting toys at Christmas is certainly fun (no doubt about it!)- it’s not the reason Jesus came. He told us how important it is to help our brothers and sisters who are in need, so we want to honor Him by showing His love in that way this season.
The Samaritan’s Purse catalog has a great selection of gifts we can give – check it out with your kids to help them get excited about this project. If there’s something that really calls out to your heart, let us know. We encourage you to take it a step further and help collect from other family members and friends who could be part of this blessing! You can find the catalog at https://www.samaritanspurse.org/our-ministry/samaritans-purse-gift-catalog-electronic-version/
We look forward to sharing the results with you soon!
