The Reindeer Project started 20 years ago in Rowlett. We work with the counselors in Garland Independent School District who recommend families in need. The staff organizers at First UMC Garland counsels each family and puts them in a data base which tells them if they are being serviced by any other organization. The family needs are recorded including angel tree gifts. If the family has other needs they are recorded for later purchases or in case others can help with those needs.
The families will be invited to come to a dinner on December 12th to pickup the gifts and wrap them. While the parents are wrapping the gifts the children will shop in the Mom and Pop shop for the care givers, wrap those gifts, make crafts and watch a Christmas video.
The season of Advent is a highlight of any Christian's life. It is a time of joy, color, light, and anticipation. And it is a time of worship! This is a season that calls us to fall to our knees in worship of the awesome God.
Journeying together this Advent season will be the whole family of God, the ones who occupy the seats beside you as you gather together for this shared experience. Present and not present, these are the ones who occupy your minds and hearts as you seek this new place, this new way of being together. Invariably, when you travel together, some are more anxious than others. Some may prefer to stay where they are. Others are so hopeful of what is to come that they may begin to overwhelm the rest. Some just want the journey to be over. Others are content to enjoy the ride. Journeys impact us in different ways. But even with the best of intentions and the joy of community, it won’t be long before someone says, “Are we there yet?”
This advent season study with us at 9:30 AM in room 210 & worship with us at 10:30 AM.
