We will be helping the Chesterfield/Colonial Heights Christmas Mother program bring the joy of the holidays to Chesterfield families! There are two ways to help, donation and hands-on opportunities!

Coats: We will be collecting new or gently used coats for the Chesterfield/Colonial Heights Christmas Mother program. Please drop coats to the narthex now through November 26th.  
Gift Cards: We are also collecting gift cards for Christmas Mother to be used as gifts for their families or to purchase toys, gifts, etc. They prefer gift cards to Walmart, Target or Amazon and the suggested amount is $25. There will be a basket on the table in the narthex beginning Sunday, Nov. 26 to put them in. Gift cards should be returned by December 10th.

Christmas Mother is looking for volunteers to help sort clothing items on Dec. 4 from 9:00 – 1:00 at the Chesterfield County Fairgrounds. They will also need help on Dec. 5, 6, 7 to act as “Volunteer Shoppers” with the families they serve. Please use this link to sign up to be a Christmas Mother Volunteer.

The Presbytery of the James reaches out around the world to aid in disaster recovery and relief. If you would like to contribute to a specific world disaster area, please indicate, in the note section of your donation, the direction your monies should be sent (Ukraine, Haiti, Turkey, etc.).

Angel Tree is a Christian based program of Christmas gift giving to children who have an incarcerated parent. Our church members have the opportunity to select an angel from the tree and purchase the requested gift for the child on the angel. It is suggested that the gift you purchase be in the $25 range. The Angel Tree will be in the narthex until Sunday, December 17. All gifts should be returned to the narthex, wrapped with the angel attached, by Wednesday, December 19. Call or email Sue Casey with any questions. 804-651-0185, tvols@verizon.net.
