We have another opportunity this year to demonstrate love to those who feel forgotten. There are many people in nursing homes who have no family, friends, or finances. They are alone and dependent on others. If not for the loving generosity of strangers, they would not receive one gift on Christmas. The gift may seem small, but it is so much more than the items in the box. It demonstrates compassion, kindness, hope, and love. Most importantly, it is one of the ways we can show the love of Christ to others.

We are in need of people to “adopt” local nursing home residents. The process is really simple. We give you a slip of paper with the first name of the person along with their specific wish list items. You purchase the gifts and return them to the church unwrapped. It’s as simple as that!

This year we have 49 residents who need to be “adopted.” Please prayerfully consider getting involved to help one more person receive a gift that otherwise may not. There will be a distribution table of names in Sulanke Commons after worship on Sunday, November 11.

If you have any questions, please contact Shirley Bookout at (765) 744-1207.
