This past Sunday, we received more ideas from the Westheights Church family on the topic of: “What could we be doing differently this Christmas?” Sharing these ideas helps inspire and encourage us as we strive together to make this Christmas more meaningful and worshipful.
- Instead of purchasing gifts between friends, this year we are purchasing craft supplies for the Nicaragua Missions trip.
- Christmas is a time for family. What about those who have no family? Loneliness is the worst feeling one can have. Our family has tried each year to invite an individual (friend, co-worker, acquaintance) to our home for Christmas day and include a gift for them under our tree.
- It would be a good idea if, through World Vision, the church as a whole (children, youth and adults) pool money to stock an African village with animals ($1200), or drill a well ($2400). It’s a great feeling to give to the needy and this way all could be involved by just giving up one lunch out.
