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: Due to COVID-19, you will need to CALL Shirley Bookout at (765) 744-1207 to get a name of the person along with their specific wish list items. Purchased gifts can be returned to the church UNWRAPPED. Please use the doors at the circle drive. The outer doors will be unlocked Monday-Thursday from 8 a.m.-3 p.m., and Friday from 8 a.m.-noon. Place your gift in the bin provided.

This year we have 31 residents who need to be “adopted.” Please prayerfully consider getting involved to help one more person receive a gift who otherwise may not.

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