This past Sunday, we had the opportunity to support families right here in the St. Croix Valley who need a little extra assistance to ensure that the things their kids need, and wished for, are under the tree this Christmas.
I’m not gonna lie, I was nervous that we bit off more than we could chew. The tree where we hung these gift tags was full, and we only had one week to get all the shopping done. However, within a matter of seconds, every single tag was taken! Many of you were asking if we had more. Truthfully, I’m not sure why I ever doubted. Time and time again, you rise to whatever challenge you are presented. THANK YOU MIDCURRENT! I love being a part of such a generous and giving church!
If you grabbed a tag or two, don’t forget to bring it back to church THIS Sunday. Drop your unwrapped gifts into a bag, attach the identification tag to the outside, leave it with us, and we’ll take it from there!
If you didn’t get a tag on Sunday, but still want to support this Christmas Campaign, you can bring hats, mittens, socks and underwear this Sunday as well. Those basic necessities will accompany each of the gifts we provide and will be distributed to all those who need them this winter as well.
I suppose it’s fitting that we had one week to complete this campaign because we are just about to finish our message series, ONE. Thanks to my good friend and colleague, Jamie Staples, who was with us on Sunday. He shared a vital message about our need to make a rugged commitment to loving, forgiving, and bearing with one another.
This Sunday, I’m gonna bring this whole series to a close by talking about the ONE SHOT we have to influence others for Jesus. I think it’s the perfect message for each of us as we head into the Christmas season.
Don’t miss it!
