  • Purchase gifts
  • Place gifts in a gift bag
  • Attach ornament to the gift bag
  • Return all to the church or church office by December 15
  • Please note the date of gift return on sign out sheet
Christ Church will also be assisting with a Christmas party for the kids and their families on Monday, December 16, 4 to 7 p.m.. If you would like to contribute, we will need cookies, finger food, chips and dip, helpers for games, food serving, and Santa, folks just to chat and be welcoming with the families and kids, and help with set up and clean up.
