Our 15th annual Gift of Christmas will be held on Saturday, December 7th, 2019 from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM. We are estimating that 100 guests (men, women, and children) plus 60 volunteers will participate in this event as we partner with the following agencies:
- The Family Living Center Homeless Shelter
- Canton YWCA
- Refuge of Hope Ministries
Our desire is to extend God’s goodness to each person as they experience the demonstration of His love in a tangible way. An overview of the GOC activities includes:
- Participants will be given a packed lunch and transported to area retailers where they will shop for personal needs and family Christmas gifts using donated funds.
- Activities will continue after participants are transported to Frontline Worship Center at 6200 Wales Avenue NW, Massillon, OH (Jackson Township).
- An afternoon snack is provided while the participants play games, wrap the purchased gifts, and choose articles from donated clothing.
- Children participate in interactive classes where they learn the true meaning of Christmas.
- A gift bag is provided for each participant.
- A sit-down holiday dinner with all the trimmings will be served to all.
- A Christmas presentation will include drama, dance, worship, and an inspirational message of hope.
