WHITE CHRISTMAS 2020
“White Christmas” has been an annual tradition for our church family. On the second Sunday of December, we bring non-perishable goods wrapped in white tissue or common grocery sacks and place them on the altar at the conclusion of our worship service. After the worship service, a team of volunteers would take the non-perishable items to the “Big Room” to be sorted into Christmas boxes for families in need. While the boxes were assembled, a team would go to a local grocery story to purchase “perishables.” Then these boxes would be delivered to families that Sunday afternoon.
Then COVID-19 showed up. But the need still exists. So, White Christmas 2020 looks different. Instead of bringing non-perishables, we are asking each person or family to donate to the church the amount of money they would spend purchasing non-perishables. We will take the money, as well as money from our designated Benevolence line item, and order the perishable and non-perishable items online for a local grocery retailer. Then we will have volunteers to deliver the Christmas boxes to families in need.
You can give one of the following ways:
1. If you are attending worship this Sunday, you can leave the donation in the offering plate located in the main lobby.
2. You can give to “White Christmas” online at rhccs.org/give.
3. You can give to “White Christmas” on the RHC app.
4. You can personally deliver your donation by putting it in an envelope and putting it in the mail slot by the glass doors on our main entrance on Delaware Street.
Please help us to provide a Christmas meal and more for those families in need this Christmas season!
