CHRISTMAS OUTREACH PROJECTS

We’re doing 2 Xmas projects this year. We’re able to do so much thanks to your generous cheer. 

The Pampered Purses project is almost complete. 45 purses with goodies to pamper the women at the shelters this Xmas. 

We will soon have the names of 10 children from the John G Carlisle school to do Xmas presents. We will have more details about that Angel Tree soon. 

PANORAMA CHRISTMAS PARTY

Panorama Christmas Party will be December 14th.     We need lots of help!  Please let Brenda or Marie know what you can help with and what you are bringing.

AMAZON SMILE

When you’re doing your holiday shopping on Amazon this year, you can support First Christian Church while you shop. You can choose First Christian Church Covington Ky as the organization you support by following this link: https://smile.amazon.com/ch/61-0549872. Then, when you shop, go to smile.amazon.com and shop as you normally do. First Christian Church will receive gifts from Amazon based on your shopping. If you have any questions, please see Pastor Tracy or visit the church’s FB page for the link.

Poinsettias will be purchased individually this year.  If you bring in a Poinsettia, please let the office know whose memory or whose honor you are wishing to acknowledge.

The Covington Breakfast Mission will be serving breakfasts on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday through this winter.  Your help is needed. No need to cook, wash dishes or clean up. Just show up at 7:30 am to 9:00 am to serve food. All you need to do is put food on plates and remind people that Jesus loves them.  If you want to stay and wash dishes, you won’t be turned away 🙂

From Randy:  I am overwhelmed by your beautiful messages of love and appreciation!  Over the years you have become like an extended family.  The warmth and sense of home that I feel at First Christian is something I treasure greatly.                                  Thank you all so much!
