Some of the folks in our church are so cool. They decided rather than asking “What did you get this Christmas?” they wanted to ask What did you give this Christmas?.
Isn’t that great?
So for the last few weeks they’ve been having Knit and Movie nights where they knit scarves, hats, and blankets for our local homeless shelter.
So they’ve decided to have themes for each week of Advent. So on:
- 12/2 bring Baby Products: diapers, wipes, baby powder
- 12/9 bring Hygiene Products: soaps, deodorants, shampoos
- 12/16 bring Detergents: laundry, fabric softener, and the like
- 12/23 bring Paper Products: paper towels and all things paper.
The homeless shelter never knows who’ll be there and these are things they always need.
So, if you call the Vineyard Church of Waterville home, please come this Sunday with baby things!
And even if you don’t call VCW home, you can bring it anyway!
