For those of you who aren’t familiar with Affordable Christmas, it is a chance for us to give local Kansas City families the opportunity to provide Christmas for their family in a way that preserves their dignity and promotes empowerment.
Basically, we turn our building in Midtown into a Christmas department store where families come, eat breakfast, purchase gifts (for 1/10th of the cost), and leave with presents wrapped and ready for Christmas morning.
Each year, over 200 families walk through the doors of our church, more than 250 kids hang out with our volunteers while their families shop, and more than 400 people work to create and nurture relationships with our neighbors.
In short, it is a complete blast, and we need your help to pull it off! It has been so encouraging to see more and more packages arrive at our building!
But we’re not done yet: this Sunday we need more than 1600 brand-new gifts to make Affordable Christmas happen.
If you would like to purchase a gift, you may do so on any of our wish lists through Amazon or Target and have it shipped directly to our Midtown building (3921 Baltimore), or bring your gift to any service at either of our congregations this Sunday.
See you on Sunday. We’re excited to see how God works through your generosity to pull this off!
