Share the Warmth. Spread His Love.

Winter Communion Sunday Christian Website Banner
With temperatures cooling down and with the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons upon us, we are mindful of winter fast approaching. We pull our coats out of the closet or from under our bed, turn our thermostats up, and warm ourselves with a fresh pot of coffee, tea, or cocoa while nestled under a blanket. However, that is not the case for many in our community who do not even have a warm coat to wear or a blanket to warm themselves. For nearly 15% of Americans living in poverty including children, the homeless, and seniors, a winter coat is a budget “extra”, not a necessity. 
 
So What Can You Do?
 
Share the Warmth. Spread His Love.
 
Donate items to our Coat & Blanket Drive November 20-December 11. The drive benefits local non-profits South Strand Helping Hand and Street Reach in Myrtle Beach, who will give the coats and blankets to individuals and families that need them.
 
You may drop off the items in any of the designated boxes at church which will be in the side hall, foyer, and fellowship hall. Coats and blankets for any size/gender are welcome!
 
As we celebrate the Thanksgiving & Christmas season may we be mindful of those who are less fortunate than us, having the love and compassion of Christ and giving to those in need. Give a coat or blanket to share the warmth and the love of Christ with those in our community.
 
“‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”
– Matthew 25:34-40 NIV
