Generosity is our privilege because of
his generosity toward us

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 to share the love of Jesus with our Longview & Kilgore community for Christmas! New Covenant has partnered with Meals On Wheels to provide Christmas gift boxes for families needing a little extra love during the Christmas season.

Starting Sunday, November 26th, we will have gift boxes available for pickup in the lobbies at both campuses. We ask that you take a box, fill the box with items from the Christmas wish list for this person/family (which will be located inside the box), and return the box during the week of December 10th. You are welcome to go above and beyond! Be creative – write handwritten notes, add sweet treats, and other fun things!

On December 17th (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 love of Jesus!

We know you are a generous church, and you love so well – we are excited to see what God is going to do through you this Christmas season!

Where do I pick up and drop off gift boxes?

South Campus // gift boxes will be in the expansion lobby (coffee bar area)
North Campus // gift boxes will be in the lobby (in front of the “Better Together” wall)
*You will fill out the tag located on the top of the box before taking the box - this helps us keep track of the boxes.

What if the items I’ve purchased doesn’t fit in the gift box?

We are asking that you only purchase items that can fit in the box.

Do I buy only the items on the list or can I add items that aren’t?

You can absolutely purchase items that are not on the wish list! You can be creative by purchasing a sweet treat, writing an encouraging note, etc.
**Please do not purchase additional items if it will not fit in the gift box.

May I donate financially if I do not want to fill a gift box?

Yes! You may donate towards filling a box by bringing cash/check to the SBC table after the 9 AM or 10:30 AM service at each campus, and a serve team member will be there to assist you. If you are writing a check, please make it out to:
New Covenant Church P.O. Box 8053 Longview, Texas 75607

Do I meet with others to go and distribute the boxes or do I go alone?

Everyone will be meeting at our North Campus at 3pm to distribute the gifts on Sunday, December 17th. We will be delivering the gift boxes in groups. For everyone’s safety, we ask that no one deliver on their own.

What if we deliver the gift box and no one is home?

Great question! Please do not leave the box on the doorstep. Return all remaining boxes to our North Campus and the NCC staff will make sure they get delivered.

Do we wear NCC merch and is there anything particular we say at delivery?

Wearing an NCC shirt/sweater is not required but you are more than welcome to wear one. We will be going over what to say when you deliver the box the day of the outreach.

Can I take more than one gift box?

Definitely! You can take as many as you’d like. We encourage you to go in together with friends or fellow life group members!

How much should I spend per gift box?

The cost of each box will be different depending on the items purchased. Each gift box could possibly be $50-$100.
