Appeal for Collection of Gifts for Needy Children in Community
Dear (FIRST NAME),
Greetings in Jesus Name!
That time of year is upon us again. It is the time of great joy and good cheer. As Christmas approaches, we as the Church reflect upon the greatest gift imaginable, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Undoubtedly, many of you have already made plans and done your shopping. Perhaps you have already purchased or made that special something for someone close to you. This is one of the joys of the Christmas season, but have you considered why we give at Christmas? Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
Winter is rapidly approaching, and with winter comes the cold temperatures that present such a challenge for our homeless population.
For the past six years, FCC has been able to partner with Outreach Ministries, an organization dedicated to serving the homeless here in our city. Outreach provides weekly meals, counseling services, legal advice and social services to people who find themselves living on the streets. They also hold weekly Bible studies and a church service on Sunday mornings. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
This time of year is amazing! It’s a wonderful time when we cast our focus on the miracle of Christ’s birth over 2,000 years ago as He left the splendor of heaven to humble Himself and walk the dusty roads of Israel speaking life and healing into the lives of the people.
I still believe we serve the same God today! How many lives we have seen come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and their lives have been completely changed by His power. For people who know the Lord, it’s so much more than endless gifts and expenses at this time of year, but it’s about living a relationship with the King of Kings and Lord of Lords on a daily basis.

It’s hard to believe, but Christmas is almost here! It seems like it was just a “few days ago” since last Christmas, but as you know, time passes quickly!
This is usually the most anticipated time of year for children all across our nation and the world as parents do their best to give them a Christmas they will remember for a long time. I don’t know about you, but some of my fondest memories of Christmas don’t really have to do with “big toys” or “expensive gifts”, but good quality family time.

I wanted to take this opportunity to send a note of encouragement to get involved in a ministry of practical and spiritual value which serves many people in need on both a weekly and monthly basis. This ministry is our Food Ministry called (NAME OF FOOD MINISTRY).
This ministry has been part of our church for (NUMBER OF YEARS), and in that time has been a tremendous blessing to hundreds within our community who have needed the resources we have to offer. It has been a great joy to serve them! Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
Well, it’s that time of year again! Christmas is such a wonderful and joyous occasion as we celebrate the birth of Christ by giving gifts (and receiving some too), as well as spending time with families and loved ones, and so much more.
This letter is just a little reminder that while we are so blessed to share in the joys of Christmas, it can also be a very difficult time for families struggling financially during tough times. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
I wanted to take a moment to send this letter of appreciation for your generous offering of love on behalf of families in need here at the church during the Christmas Season.
Without a doubt, there aren’t too many things a parent struggles with more than knowing they are going to have to try to find a way to explain to their children why Christmas is so different this year. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
As we are all painfully aware, our community has been devastated by a serious hurricane. While we are thankful that the human toll was low, we must not forget the many members of our community who lost everything they own. For this reason, I am asking those who can to make a special offering that will be used to help the victims of the hurricane. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
