HUMC partners every Christmas with local community organizations where there is a great need. Most of these children and adults would not have Christmas gifts if it were not for our generous congregation. These individuals are so appreciative of the gifts they receive. We support Sylvan Retreat, Faith Friendship, Nehemiah House and Care Families that Care Ministries works very closely with throughout the year.
This year, due to Covid-19, our Share-A- Christmas will have two options and look a bit different this year.
- All Care Ministry family gifts will be on an Amazon Wish List. When you select and purchase your Amazon wishlist Share-A-Christmas children’s gift, everything is already set to automatically send your gift(s) directly to HUMC staff member Diane Adams’s home address (or you may see her name and address on your screen, if so, please click on it as teh delivery destination). Diane graciously agreed to have all gifts sent to her address since the church office may be closed at the time of deliveries. Please order early to ensure all your gifts arrive on time. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Michele Kassees .
- Sylvan Retreat, Faith Friendship, and Nehemiah House will be handled by continuing with the traditional tags on the tree and the number system.The tags will be on the tree in the lobby November 15. We will have someone each Sunday at both services stationed at a table in the lobby to record all your information.
It’s been a really challenging year for all of us but even more challenging for the individuals in the group homes where their lives have been more confined due to Covid-19. Care families are finding it more challenging this year due to job losses, not being able to find employment and having their children home from school. We are looking forward to helping our community during this difficult time with a wonderful expression of our love. We trust we can count on your generous donations again this year.
