Vision Quest Foster Kid Project: Please give by December 4th
We hope to be able to provide gifts for these 96 children most of them under the age of 9 simply select a toy from their Amazon Wishlist at the link below, or you can make a monetary donation and we will then select a toy from the list or purchase a gift card for one of their teens. To make a monetary donation, simply mail your check labeled “Christmas Gifts” to the church. VisionQuest will do all the wrapping for us, and items purchased from the wishlist can be shipped directly to their office: Amazon already has the address so you can select “Andrea Parker’s Gift Registry Address” when you are checking out. Please make all purchases by December 4th so it has time to arrive for their Christmas event.

Tis the Season Blessing Bag Project: Please help by December 15th
Tis the season to be Jolly! Most of us can consider ourselves blessed beyond measure. As Christians we know this is not a statement about how much money we may or may not have but by the grace of God the Spirit that lives within the body of Christ. So if we are blessed how much more should we strive to be a blessing to someone less fortunate than ourselves?

Christ Church United Methodist is embarking on a Christmas project to help the homeless by giving 200 blessing bags. Below are a few ways that you can be a part of this giving effort:

We invite you to donate one or more of the (bulk) items listed below by first contacting Michael Edwards (520-912-2017) to let him know what you intend to purchase and then ordering from Amazon, Walmart, or Frys, and shipping the products to Michael at 4245 E Poe Street, Tucson, AZ 85711. If you prefer, you may send a monetary gift marked “Blessings Bags Project” to the church instead or commit your family to help with the assembly and/or distribution of the Blessing Bags.
