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 13th 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.
Ebenezer Scrooge is a man in dire need of a second chance. Is redemption possible for such a greedy, dark and sad character? The Redemption of Scrooge, from Matt Rawle’s The Pop in Culture Series, shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens’ Christmas classic. From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this Advent study will “bless us every one” and reinvigorate our spiritual journeys as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith.
This advent season study with us at 9:30 AM in room 210 & worshipwith us at 10:30 AM.
