At Faith Community we believe in changing one life at a time through Christ! For 50 years, Faith has helped change and improve local lives through mission trips and local programs including the Faith Food Pantry and Stepping Forward.
Since 2010, Faith has hosted a December program for our local Food Pantry families to help them celebrate Christmas. Highlights of this Christmas celebration include a hot breakfast, photos with Santa, a dress-up manger scene photo booth, a Christmas food basket for the family, and gifts for the children.
Dignity is important, so Faith Community structures our programs to help empower those we serve by having them participate in the change process. We serve with an attitude of humility and honor to God, not out of superiority to those we serve. Instead of a “Hand Out” we strive to give local families in need a “Hand Up.”
Christmas with Dignity
Our Christmas Shop is designed to give parents the opportunity to provide Christmas for their family. Our shop allows parents to select and purchase a $30-valued gift for their children at a greatly-reduced price. Last year over 250 families were able to purchase gifts for their children.
By offering the gifts at a reduced price, we are giving parents the dignity to purchase and select gifts for their children. This event began in response to parents watching their children receive well-intentioned gifts selected by strangers that the parents wished they were able to purchase. Thus, dignity is restored to them as they are able to purchase the gifts for their own children.
