Christmas Gift Shoppe 2017

Children are invited to our Advent festival, The Christmas Gift Shoppe, which focuses on sharing the love of Jesus through mindful giving. Participants make Christmas gifts for free, wrap or bag them, tag them, and personalize cards to give to those special people that could use a thoughtful gift. Children will be encouraged to give gifts to teachers, custodians, cafeteria workers, nurses, mail carriers, bus drivers, and other service professionals as well as friends, family, and neighbors.
Gift-making opportunities will include ornaments, jewelry, treats, and novelties. Some new gifts this year include a personalized tote bag perfect for an on-the-go librarian or principal, Kool-Aid lip gloss for the wind-swept school crossing guard, and Duct Tape pouches for the grandmother who can’t find the pens in her purse.  There will also be fun for the whole family with the nativity photo booth, gingerbread nativity building, drinking hot cocoa, playing games, listening to music, and more.
If you would like to help at a booth or donate items, please contact Bethany Suarez at the church office or fill out the volunteer / donation form.
