Make A Difference This Christmas

Make A Difference This Christmas

2020 has been a challenging year around the world. The difficulties of 2020 are especially hard on those who are poor and marginalized. This Christmas the needs in our community and world are greater, and we want to respond with greater generosity than ever before  sharing the love of Jesus in our witness and in our actions.

Whoever is kind to the poor lends to the LORD,
and he will reward them for what they have done.
Proverbs 19:17 (NIV)

Christmas in the city

We want to be a church that is good for our city. This year we are partnering with front line agencies to provide organization support, food hampers, and needed items for families struggling this Christmas. Partnerships with the Fredericton Downtown Community Clinic and The Fredericton Shelters help us effectively and accurately meet the needs of those experiencing homelessness and near homelessness with practical expressions of loving care.

Other ways to Participate in Christmas in the City

Water for Haiti

In Haiti people face considerable difficulties. In urban areas of the country, approximately only one in four people have access to safe water, and in the rural areas, it’s only one in two people. During the time of a global pandemic, access to safe water both for drinking and for cleaning is even more important than ever.

We have been partnering with World Vision to providing clean water by rehabilitating wells, raising awareness of water and sanitation practices, creating water stations, and training locals how to maintain and preserve clean water sources.

Your donation can provide clean water, and water is life!

Already Completed for 2020:
Operation Christmas Child

Thank you for everyone who returned a box to the church. The deadline for drop offs has now passed for this year.

Operation Christmas Child sends shoe boxes full of gifts to children in countries around the world. These gifts are used as part of outreach programs by local churches as a means of evangelism and reaching into their communities. Let’s help churches reach their communities and show love to young children globally.

You can pickup a box from the church on a Sunday, through the week during office hours (9 AM to 1 PM), or when attending another church event, beginning on Sunday, October 25. All boxes should be returned to the church by Sunday, November 8. Each box comes with a gift selection guide and an envelope for a donation to help with shipping costs.

If you would rather make a donation, rather than pack a box this year, here is how:
