Christmas Families 2018
And the king will answer them, `Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.' (Matthew 25:40)
"Christmas Families" is Immanuel's ministry to share a spirit-lifting Christmas with families and children who struggle in life. Child Protective Services provides us with a list of families in need of assistance, who are "adopted" by Immanuel parishioners and families. Our goal is to bring the good news of Christ's coming and God's love in a very tangible form – a toy to grow with, clothing to keep warm in – to another family, transforming a bleak Christmas into the light of Christ present.
