Join us for Christmas in July on Sunday, July 25 from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the courtyard. Share the love with our mission partners by donating needed items to the mission(s) of your choice.

People in our community are very generous around the holidays and contribute to many local charities, but come July—funds and donated items start to run low. Below is a shopping list for each mission partner. Simply bring your donations to the event and then have some fun! Our mission partners will be present to receive the donations and share info about their organization.


This year's event will be in conjunction with our VBS Celebration and will feature projects the VBS students made for select mission partners. There will be games, activities, snacks, and more!
