Children and Youth Offerings Make a Difference for a Family This Holiday Season

Children and youth at Hope United Church of Christ has had a tradition of taking the financial gifts given throughout the year and each November going shopping at Wal-Mart to help a family during the holiday season.

This year the family consists of grandparents who are raising their two grandsons, who are in first grade. The children’s list had simple items on them: long sleeve shirts, Hot Wheel toys and books. The grandparents asked for nothing for themselves. Thankfully, our children and youth found gifts for them as well.

Thank you to the parents and others who financially support this ministry of our youth and children.
