CHRISTMAS FOR THE CITY 2018

Sunday, December 16

We are excited for the entire church to come TOGETHER for our 3rd annual Christmas for the City.  This year will feature the return of our Habitat for Humanity wall build and assembling meals with Children’s Hunger Fund, a new exciting addition.  We will worship together, eat lunch together, and serve together!

This year, TOGETHER we will build the walls for 5 Habitat homes for Houston families and package 36,000 meals for people in our city.

  • Children ages 4-11 will package meals with Children’s Hunger Fund and write prayers on the Habitat home build boards.
  • Adults and students ages 12 and older can serve on the wall build or package meals.
  • Adults may serve on a hospitality team to provide refreshments to all of our volunteers.
  • Crew Leaders (ages 12 and up) are needed to help lead children’s activities.
  • Child care will be available for ages 3 and under. Please select this option during the online registration process.

TOGETHER Grace will have the opportunity to unite around the following two challenges: SUPPORT and SERVE.

SUPPORT

Your generous contributions will help us reach our financial goal of  $46,500 to make these projects a reality for families in our city. You may give online or with a check made payable to Grace (it is important to note “Christmas for the City” on the memo line). You can also contribute on Sunday mornings in the courtyard.

Here are some suggested ways to give:

  • Walls for five houses: Single boards for $25, a room for $1500, or an entire house for $7500.
  • 36,000 meals:  100 meals for $25, 1000 meals for $250 or 3000 meals for $750.
  • A financial contribution of your choice.

Support

SERVE

On December 16, we will worship TOGETHER wearing our Christmas for the City shirts and work attire so that following worship and lunch we will be ready! Christmas for the City t-shirts will be available for purchase Sunday mornings, November 25 through December 16. T-shirts (new design) are $10. Vintage Christmas for the City shirts (from previous years) are $5.  Children participating in the Grace Kids Music program will be provided a t-shirt through GKM.
