The holidays can be a stressful time, especially for families facing financial hardships. This year, in order to love our neighbors well, Northwood will be hosting Christmas Bless. A three-part outreach opportunity for our church family to help meet the needs of those in our community. You can take part in a Gift Blessing, Grocery Blessing, and our Dec 12 Delivery Day!
You can register to provide a Gift Blessing for an individual child or a family of children (2-4). Shortly after you register, you will receive an email with information about your assigned child, their name, age, gender as well as a wishlist. There is a spending budget for each child of $40 – $50 dollars to help ensure that our resources are being evenly distributed and that every child receives their fair share.
When you sign up to provide a grocery blessing, you will receive an email with a grocery list outline. It will contain a shopping list of non-perishable and long shelf life items that you will need to shop for like pantry essentials, canned goods, boxed meals, and special Christmas items! Fulfilling this grocery list will require a trip to the store and likely cannot be fulfilled by simply raiding your own pantry. You can expect to spend anywhere from $50-$75 dollars depending on where and how you shop.
Delivery Day: Dec 12 | 9am – 12pm
Join us on Saturday, December 12 as we pray over, wrap, package, and discreetly deliver all of the Christmas Bless items. We want to invite and encourage everyone who is able to take part in this Delivery Day, even if you weren’t financially able to provide a Gift or Grocery Blessing. (Breakfast will be provided at this event!)
