Dear Church Family,
It’s almost been a full year since our 2019 Christmas gift drive culminated in a snowy drive across the mountains to deliver gift boxes to Sacred Road.
We were able to worship with our brothers and sisters at Hope Fellowship and shared a meal before we unloaded the 283 Christmas boxes supplied by you!
We felt so lucky to have the opportunity to deliver these gifts on your behalf – thank you for being so generous! Thank you for bringing in your shoeboxes. Thank you for purchasing items on the registry. Thank you for volunteering to pack boxes, load them into cars and drive them over. Thank you for involving your kids. Thank you for you for your prayers. Thank you for showing God’s love and care to the least of these. We were encouraged by your generosity and support – and so were our brothers and sisters at Sacred Road. Here’s a glimpse of the impact your giving had last Christmas:
We are now nearing the finish line for our 2020 Sacred Road Christmas Gift Drive and still have opportunities for you to participate!
For many of the children in White Swan, the shoeboxes we provide are the only gifts in their home on Christmas morning. These small gifts represent an opportunity for us to serve and love on some of the most vulnerable people in our state and presbytery.
After these boxes are packed on the 22nd, they will be delivered to Sacred Road Thanksgiving weekend and distributed to kids and families during the month of December. Sacred Road will hand-deliver our gift boxes to the children of White Swan and neighboring towns. They will travel around to different housing communities and hold little Christmas parties where they engage the youth with snacks, Bible stories, singing and prayer- then each child will leave with a shoebox to place under their Christmas tree. This is the work Sacred Road is engaged in all year round – to meet the physical needs of the Yakama community and deliver the good news of the gospel. Here is how you can help:
Take a look at our Registry and Order Gifts
We are hoping to package 200 boxes but still have about 100 items to go. Items on the registry range from $10 to $45 – please consider purchasing one or a few items today!
Participate in our Gift Packing Event
November 22nd following 3rd service (from 12:30 PM – 1:00 PM) in the gym
Would you please pray that these gifts would not only show children and their families the generous love of Christ on Christmas, but also draw them into community with Sacred Road and their church, Hope Fellowship?
Thank you for the generosity you have shown so far and for helping us reach our goal of 200 boxes!
