Urban Vision's Christmas Store ~ can you help?


 As members of Christ Community Chapel, we are called to know Christ, grow in Him, and serve in His name. If you feel called this Christmas to be the hands and feet of Jesus, please prayerfully consider volunteering at Local Outreach ministry partner Urban Vision this December. There are also opportunities to donate gifts to benefit our neighbors in need served by Urban Vision.

The Urban Vision Christmas Store is December 17th. This event is designed for rewarding Urban Vision kids who have earned U.V. Credits by participating in programs, getting good grades and demonstrating excellent behavior. The kids can spend their Credits to purchase gifts from the Christmas Store.

The preparation of the Christmas Store requires help from volunteers, starting on Wednesday, December 14th (6 to 9 PM), when items will be pulled from storage, tables will be set up, and donated items will be sorted. Volunteers are also needed on Thursday, December 15th from 4 to 9 PM, and on Saturday, December 17th, from 7:15 AM to 1:00 PM. In addition to setup volunteers, help is also needed for Shopper Guides, Store Clerks, Gift Wrappers and Clean-up Helpers.
