Christmas Gift Ministry
Providing Gifts for Less-Fortunate Families this Christmas Season

As we celebrate the time of Christ's birth, let us not forget where it all started. Christ was born in a manger, tucked away in a desolate, cold, and dark place. Through his birth, he brought light. Although we don't think of Christmas as a bleak and troublesome time, many in our community do. Through the love of Christ, the spirit of hope, and the promise that has been fulfilled, this can be a time of joy for us all. Goshen First UMC and the Life Center has made a promise to our community to do what Christ commanded us to do. "Let your light shine before men, that all may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."

The Christmas Gift Ministry is about bringing hope to families in the season where so many see a desolate, cold, and dark place. Our mission is to provide gifts to our local community by providing gifts of love, food, gas cards, letters of encouragement, and a Bible so that all may read and know of the light that God has brought.
