Christmas Goals

What's God telling you? Share it here.   |   We’d love to pray for you! Let us know how.

Each Christmas, Connection has intentionally served this community through various efforts including providing meals and presents to those who otherwise might not have either. After several conversations with many school counselors in our county, we realized there are some immediate and on going needs we wanted to try and meet. Instead of have a specific "Christmas Service Day" we are setting some goals as a church to raise the items listed below. These will be used for students in need as well as helping replenish the food supply at Christian Social Ministries. 

We are hoping to have all of these items in by December 8th. Check back for any additional updates/items and to stay up on what has been brought in so far.
