Riverside will be pursuing two opportunities for us to share our resources with others this Christmas season: one overseas and one in our backyard.
Riverside will again participate in Operation Christmas Child through Samaritan’s Purse. For this project we will pack a shoe box with toys, school supplies, hygiene items, and other things along with $7 for shipping. We will bring the packed boxes to the church and ship them to children around the world. More information will be provided during the worship services over the next several Sundays.
This year, Riverside will also be participating in Jubilee Christmas. This is our community’s largest Christmas assistance program. On Saturday, December 12, Riverside will become a Jubilee Toy Shop where low-income parents can select new toys, clothing, and gift certificates for their children. Riverside will need both financial donations and donations of new toys and clothing. More information will be provided during the worship services over the next several Sundays.
