2021 HOLIDAY GENEROSITY

How can you be a blessing to others this season?

The holidays lend themselves to a perfect opportunity to be generous to others. Each year we offer resources to families looking for ways to bless others this holiday season.

Check out a few of these suggestions with great organizations and some of our ministry partners. Choose one or two that might interest you or we encourage you to bless wherever God has called you.

THANKSGIVING MEALS

OCT 25 – NOV 22

For 28 years, RiverTree has partnered with several local churches to serve together and make an impact in Stark County by providing Thanksgiving meals to those in need.

This year looks a lot different due to the pandemic. We have an opportunity to still contribute with food donations of pies, cookies and most of all financial contributions to provide meals for families.

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

OCT 25 – NOV 15

We partner annually with Operation Christmas Child (OCC) to bring joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world.

This program provides an opportunity for everyone to be involved in a simple, hands-on missions project while focusing on the true meaning of Christmas—Jesus Christ, God’s greatest gift.

Learn more during weekend services now through mid-November.

WINTER COAT DRIVE

OCT 24 – DEC 5

Drop off your gently used winter coats, in all sizes, now through December 5th. Donations of new hats, gloves and scarves are also welcome!
