Join us in sharing the love of Christ while serving our community this Christmas season! On Saturday, December 9th from 9am-3pm, we are once again teaming up with New Life Temple Church to provide a Christmas Store for need-based families!

 

HOW IT WORKS:

Parents, grandparents or custodial guardians register and pay $7 per child to shop at New City Church on Saturday, December 9th. They will be able to select one new toy (valued around $20) and one new clothing item (also valued around $20) for each child in their home, 18 years old or younger. The store will be set up so that parents/shoppers have options in choosing presents, and then get to wrap their presents (or have someone wrap for them) before they leave! It’s thrilling to be able to aid parents and grandparents in providing quality, new presents for their children in a dignified and helpful way.

 

Know a need-based family who would be blessed by the Christmas Store this year? Have them go to http://newcitycincy.org/christmas-store for more information or to register as a shopper.

 

WHAT CAN YOU DO?

PRAY 

That Christ will be celebrated and glorified, that the store will foster and build relationships, that families will be blessed and experience the love of Christ.

 

SHOP 

If your budget allows, take an ornament from the tree in the Commons & purchase a NEW gift valued at $20.  Return your UNWRAPPED gift with the ornament tag by Sunday, December 3rd to the tree in the Commons.

A big thank you to all who have purchased a gift for the Christmas Store! 

Don’t forget that THIS SUNDAY is the deadline for returning your UNWRAPPED gift WITH the ornament tag. All gifts can be returned to the Commons.

We still have a few ornaments left, so if you’re in the building today for the the Men’s Summit or the Women’s Daytime Study, take a look and grab an extra if you’re able. OR, check out our virtual tree: https://goo.gl/Z8JDnr

We’d love your help to fill the last few volunteer spots. If you’re interested in Baking, Gift Wrapping, manning the Refreshment Table, serving as a Store Clerk, or cleaning up, make sure to sign up today!

Don’t be intimated by the name of the role “wrapping table lead”—-it just means that you are willing to stay the whole day! You can do it even if you haven’t ever served in the store before. There will be plenty of people to help! Thanks so much for serving with us next Saturday!!

Leah Hooper on 12/02/2017

I’m looking for someone who would be willing to make reminder phone calls to the Christmas Store shoppers on Wednesday or Thursday prior to the store. We have 55 shoppers, so if the calls are divided between several people it shouldn’t take too long. Please let me know if you can help!

Kemp Lyons on 12/04/2017

Let’s suppose we were super late to the game and bought some stuff on Sunday. Is there someone at the church to drop them off during the week at all?

Ashley Jacobs on 12/04/2017

Hey Kemp! No worries at all. The building will be open for last-minute drop-off 9-11am Monday-Thursday, and 6-8pm on Tuesday evening

Amy Newkirk on 12/05/2017

My mom and I are coming to help the 2nd half. We were going to wrap gifts, but I don’t have that option to choose so we’ll do whatever is needed.

Ashley Jacobs on 12/05/2017

Hi Amy! If you want to come up to volunteer check in and check with me when you get there, I will plug you in where we need you! Thank you and see ya Saturday!

Carey Albritton on 12/06/2017

Come & Volunteer on Saturday. The Christmas store is set up and looks amazing!  We have a record number of people coming to shop. Don’t miss out on the fun! There are still several opportunities to volunteer!  Come and join us Saturday. 🎄

Jennifer Cronk on 12/09/2017

Thank you so much to all who worked so hard on this!  You guys & gals did an AMAZING job!  It looked so beautiful, and was such a warm, sweet experience for the folks who shopped.  Thanks for using your gifts to bless our neighbors and friends, and to give them joy and honor this Christmas!!!
