Alternative Christmas Giving

Consider spending some of your Christmas dollars in a different way this year by giving a Christmas gift in honor of a loved one by making a donation to the ministry of your choice. You will receive a Christmas Card that acknowledges each donation. The card may be given to the person you wish to honor.  We encourage children to make donations (even small ones!) in honor of their parents or grandparents!  Each donation will be included in your giving statement and is tax deductible.

Step One:  In order for a Christmas Card to be sent to a family member or friend, this form must be completed first.  Click here to provide a recipients name and address for a Christmas Card gift acknowledgement.  (You may use this form for as many as four recipients.)

Step Two:  Ready to Give? Give a Christmas gift that is truly in the spirit of Jesus Christ!
