Each one according as they purpose in their heart, so let them give, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
– 2 Corinthians 9:7 –
This year, we have the opportunity for outreach in our Longview community for Christmas. New Covenant has partnered with Meals On Wheels to provide Christmas for several families in need in our community, many of which would not be able to have a Christmas of their own without this outreach. And we are excited to be able to share the love of Jesus with these families this Christmas!
Starting Sunday, November 27th, we will have white boxes available for pickup in the lobbies of both of our campuses. We ask that you take a box, fill the box with items from the Christmas wishlist for this particular person/family which can be found inside the box, and return the box during the week of December 11th. We ask that you not only provide the gifts that are requested on their wishlist, but go above and beyond! Be creative – write handwritten notes, add sweet treats and other fun things that they didn’t ask for. Fill the box and bless their socks off – be generous!
On December 18th, (the Sunday Before Christmas), we as a church body will get together and take the boxes to the homes of these families. We will deliver the gifts, pray for them, and show them the extravagant love of Jesus!
We know you are a generous church and you love so well – so we are excited to see how God is going to use you to be generous this Christmas!
