Christchurch christmas missions opportunities

The Christmas season brings with it special outreach opportunities. 

Below are the projects that CCP is excited to support this year:

sharing is caring

Sharing is Caring is a collaboration of various community agencies who work throughout the year to create a collaborative community Christmas program.  


Their goals are to:

  • Provide a similar Christmas for families that we desire for our own families
  • Address the complete needs of families and provide resources to help them be able to create their own Christmases in the future
  • Protect the families’ dignity by allowing them to choose and give the gifts to their children as well as celebrate Christmas in their own ways
  • Create an equality throughout the community of gifts that families will receive; Work together as a whole community to build parent capacity and empower families.


HOW YOU CAN HELP:

  • MONETARY DONATIONS: You can give online here or you can write a check to ChristChurch Presbyterian with "Sharing is Caring" in the memo line. All monetary donations will be used to supply the Christmas store with needed toys and clothing items.
  • DONATE NEW TOYS: New toys for ages infant to 18 years are needed! Toys must be new and should be valued in the $15-$30 range. If the toy needs batteries, please tape appropriate batteries to the toy. Please no bikes or large toys!
  • DONATE NEW CLOTHINGNew clothing is needed in all sizes.
  • DONATE GIVE AWAY ITEMSBlankets, batteries for toys, and hygiene items to be given to families at the Christmas store.

Donations of toys, clothing, and give-away items can be left in the Sharing is Caring bins in the narthex of the church or in the church office.

Donations are due by Sunday, December 13th.


poinsettias for missions

This year, we are using our Poinsettias for Missions project to support the Compassion House, a local organization here in Dalton that helps restore families that are separated by the foster care system. Compassion House is the only facility available in Whitfield and Murray County where children can have a supervised visit with their parents once they have been placed in state custody. In addition, the staff offer courses that offer children, teenagers, and adults practical programs to give them access to hope, dignity, and emotional healing.

They teach people that they can choose their future by how they respond to their past. We are excited to help support Compassion House and see this as a wonderful opportunity to minister to families in ways that are truly life-changing!


If you would like to honor or memorialize someone with your poinsettia gift, you can:

Samaritan's purse: operation christmas child

It is time again to start packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child! Samaritan’s Purse’s annual Christmas outreach project, Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world.  

This year, you can also build a box online instead of getting out and shopping in stores! Click the link below to be directed to our ChristChurch "Build a Shoebox Online" page!
