If you could have any gift you wished, what would it be? Peace on earth, an end to hunger and loneliness, an education for a child? These gifts are available … one small step at a time. Visit the Outreach Fair and see why we are “A People Who Care”. Become familiar with 10 of our outreach ministries while you spend your Christmas dollars wisely. There comes a time when your father has enough sweaters and your kids will just lose another toy in the shuffle. Honor the people close to you with a meaningful Christmas shopping alternative, a monetary gift to an outreach ministry. Make a donation to your loved one's favorite outreach ministry and receive a festive gift card to stuff into his stocking or slip into her Christmas card. Your Christmas shopping can change the lives of people you may never meet, but who share your deepest Christmas wishes.
