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:

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!

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!

Poinsettias for Missions

This year, we are using our Poinsettias for Missions project to support the Women’s Enrichment Center in memory of Pat Kingsley and her faithful devotion to their mission in supporting women, men, and families with emotional help and practical resources needed to care for themselves during and after pregnancy.

The Women’s Enrichment Center is a local organization here in Dalton that helps

educate, empower, and enriches clients and communities for life. In addition, the WEC gives each of their clients the care and attention they need, empowering them to make an informed decision for themselves and their future. We are excited to help support the Women’s Enrichment Center 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, fill out the paper form that can be found in your bulletin beginning November 21st. Donations are due by Monday, December 6th.
