 SERVE

This year we will build walls for 4 Habitat homes for Houston families and package 5,000 individual lunches for preschool children in our city.

  • Children ages 4-15 will have the opportunity to package lunches for Kids’ Meals, work on crafts and write prayers on the Habitat home build boards
  • Adults and students ages 16 and older can serve on the wall build or be crew leaders for packaging lunches, wrap and label toys and crafts
  • Adults may serve on a hospitality team to provide refreshments to all of our volunteers
  • Child care will be available for ages 3 and under. Please select this option during the online registration process

SUPPORT

  • Your generous contributions will help us reach our financial goal of  $35,000 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
  • 5,000 lunches:  20 lunches for $30, 200 lunches for $300 or 500 lunches for $750
  • A financial contribution of your choice.
  • Pray for the Christmas for the City. Pray that people may be moved during worship and blessed by the children and students performing that day. Pray also for good weather, smooth logistics and that the recipients receiving Habitat homes and Kids’ Meals would see the face and love of Jesus through these efforts.
  • Decorate bags for kids’ meals. As we prepare for the event, please bless our families by picking up a stack of brown lunch bags, decorating them (no stickers please) and returning them to the Welcome Center before December 10. The bags are available for pick up in the Connection Center in a bin marked “Kids’ Meals.”
