Be a ‘Santa Claus’ for Good Causes!

Here are three ways you can “Gift for Good” through Messiah Lutheran Church this holiday season.

1. Give gifts to local and international charities through Messiah’s Giving Mall!

Through December you can designate a gift in someone’s honor through Messiah’s Ministry Gift Mall!  This a great way to support the ministries and missions Messiah Lutheran Church regularly supports all year long.    First, pick up or download the 2018 Gifts for Mission Form and list the dollar amount you’d like each ministry to receive.  Return the form with your check to the Giving Mall box.   Don’t forget to take a card for every gift you intend to give in someone’s honor.   Bonus! Gifts given through Messiah’s Giving Mall are also tax deductible.

2. Make Advent Offerings!  This year’s Wednesday Advent offerings will be shared equally with: 

Pro tip: Be sure to indicate “Advent Offering” on the memo line of the check or on the giving envelope. 

3.  Purchase an ornament or other “Warm Wooly” lovingly crafted by Messiah’s Mission Crafters. 

Support Messiah’s two Lunches for Learning schools in Honduras by purchasing an ornament off of the L4L ornament tree in the Narthex OR purchasing an item from their “Warmy Wooly Sale” located in Classroom 3 in Messiah’s Classroom Wing.    There are knit and crocheted hats, mittens, scarfs and shawls, and other cozy gifts for loved ones in your life to choose from.   Please pay the Church office for any items you purchase from the Warm Wooly sale.

Pass the Peace!
