Take a break from your holiday shopping, baking and gift wrapping and embrace the joy of Christmas. There are so many things to celebrate and moments to share with our friends, family and community. Here are five ways to make this Christmas one to remember.
Come together as a community
Help make sure no child in our city goes without a gift this Christmas. We’ll be distributing presents at the first Hoboken Christmas Exchange this Saturday night at 301 Garden. If you adopted a family, please drop off your wrapped gifts between 4 and 5 p.m. There are still plenty of other ways to get involved with the actual distribution (5-9 p.m.).Volunteers will be handing out gifts, taking family portraits and more. To find out how you can help, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join us this Sunday morning for our Christmas Celebration Service, as we reflect on the incredible ways in which God has pursued each one of us this year. The Hoboken Grace Choir will also be performing for the first time. You won’t want to miss it!
Spread some cheer
There’s still time to contribute to our Christmas Offering, which allows us to impact people in our community and around the world. Our 2016 global partners include Potter’s House, True Mentors, HOPES, Liberty in North Korea and many other organizations. Contribute today through PushPay and our online giving page.
Share it with friends and family
Our Christmas Eve services (Dec. 24 at 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.) are a great opportunity to invite friends and family. Grace Kids class will be provided at both services.
Cherish the moment
Don’t forget: There will be no services on Sunday, Dec. 27. Take this time to create more holiday memories, bond with friends and family, and relax.
