This year we'll have our traditional Angel Tree, plus another tree for collecting hats, scarves, mittens and gloves for people in need. They'll be in the Great Hall beginning Sunday, November 29. You'll also have the option to donate to Angel Tree online!
Here are several different ways you can help:
1. Choose a tag or tags from the tree in the Great Hall, and write your name and contact info on the gift list. Purchase and wrap your gifts, then place them under the Angel Tree by December 15. 2. Donate here paypal.me/ssiah through December 5, and we'll do the shopping. Make sure to designate your gift to go to Angel Tree. 3. Help shop for gifts for those who donated online. 4. Help wrap gifts that were purchased. 5. Help deliver gifts to our Angel Tree families. 6. Donate and decorate our second tree (should we call it our Everett ElemenTree?) with new and gently used hats, scarves, gloves, and mittens. Questions? Please contact: Lyndsay Jensen or 402.937.5446
Join the Messiah Family in this unique way to celebrate the birth of Jesus, based on the award-winning book, The Sparkle Box: A Gift with the Power to Change Christmas. Pick up a Sparkle Box for your household on Sundays in the Great Hall or weekdays at the Main Office. Your box will include a link to a video reading of the story, fun resources, and ideas to make your experience special. Enjoy this video reading of The Sparkle Box book, and find more info on our Holiday page.
This year, you can enjoy an original Christmas story about the first Christmas, a young girl and her family, and a cat. Scott Guenther, our director of digital ministries, wrote this story as a gift to all this Christmas. The 24-part story will be released 1 chapter every day, beginning on December 1st and ending on December 24. Scott set up a website for the story here. If you want reminders of when a new chapter is released each day, click the subscribe button on that website.
Beginning November 23 we'll have a daily series of Christmas memories videos that our staff has recorded. You'll also find content from Confirmation, Children's Ministry, and announcements. To make sure you don't miss any of them, go to YouTube subscribe to our channel, and click the notification bell to be alerted to new videos.
