LAST CHANCE TO SIGN-UP TO SERVE
TO DONATE A TOY IS THIS SUNDAY!
Renaissance Bible Church partners with and supports Main Street Mission in China Grove, NC and we have an amazing opportunity to do even more to support their mission. Many of you served with us for our recent GONE service project where we helped spruce up their facility. We don’t want to stop there!
Main Street Mission offers Christmas to those who struggle financially, helping to alleviate stress on families. Their Classic Christmas Shoppe allows parents to make better use of their means to provide necessities, while not missing out on the joy of Christmas giving. Yet, how we do this is very important. While offering gifts that we choose, purchase and deliver may feel really good for the giver, it may come at a great cost for the recipient. Having the opportunity to make an exchange, to do their part and to choose their own gifts for their children preserves dignity for families in need. The gift of dignity is truly the best gift we could ever give someone.
This year, the Classic Christmas Shoppe will be open at the South Rowan YMCA for 3 days: Dec. 7, 8 and 9 this year (with set up days on Dec. 5 and 6). We hope to make it even more like a real store experience so that our neighbors truly feel like they are shopping (just like we do) for Christmas.
You can imagine such an undertaking will require helpers! If you are looking for a community service project for your family this Christmas season, please consider signing up to volunteer with the Classic Christmas Shoppe. Here is the link: Sign Up to Serve
If you’re unable to volunteer your time at the Shoppe itself, we’ve got you covered as well. Main Street Mission is accepting donations of new items that can be placed in the Shoppe. For each Sunday in November, a member of our GONE Team will be collecting items at the back of the gym.
