christmas Gift away

We realize many families in our congregation and in the community are on fixed incomes, have lost employment, are struggling to pay medical bills, or are dealing with a multitude of other circumstances from which they are not able to quickly recover. If you know individuals or families in our community who are in need during the upcoming Christmas season, we ask that you complete a GiftAway Referral form, providing all of the information requested. This information is necessary as we consider how best to help each family and insure correct and timely delivery of the gifts.

 

It is not necessary for the people you refer to attend Chapel Rock, but the person making the referral must attend Chapel Rock. Please do not refer yourself to the GiftAway program. If you are aware of multiple households that need assistance, you must submit a form for each family. To enable our funding to reach as many households as possible, you are limited to refer only three (3) families for GiftAway.

 

Please note we may not be able to assist everyone who is referred. In order for the person(s) you are referring to be considered for help, GiftAway referral forms (paper or online) must be received in the church office by Sunday, November 19. Beginning on Sunday, October 29, there will be a box located at the Information Center in the Foyer for you to deposit your completed forms. During the week, completed forms may be delivered to the church office during regular office hours.

 

Thank you for helping us reach out with the love of Christ to these families. Please pray about what you can give to the special “GiftAway” offering that will be taken on Sunday, November 19, to provide the funding for this gift of love.

christmas dinner in a bag

Volunteers are needed to assist in the organization of all donated food items for Chapel Rock’s “Christmas Dinner in a Bag” community outreach.

 

The first half of the process is to remove donated food items from bags and place the items on tables in Fellowship Hall. The second half of the process is to re-package the food to create the “Christmas Dinner in a Bag.”

 

Volunteers are needed Monday through Wednesday, November 27 – 29.  The time you volunteer is flexible and totally up to your schedule. Please indicate on the sign-up form your choice of morning, afternoon, or evening shifts.  You may also call the church office 317. 247. 9739 to volunteer.
