You will read about The Giving Tree at Cornerstone Naz... Each of the donations you see listed below will be found at The Giving Tree in the main hallway. When you visit The Tree to choose your Christmas donation, please check in with one of the Tree Assistance so that they can register your donation of choice.
Cornerstone Christmas Kids ~ We have nearly 100 children that we are helping this year at Christmas! We are providing their gifts to ease up the financial pressure on their parents. You can go to The Giving Tree at the church to select a child, or even a family to help this year. We ask that your gifts be returned to the church unwrapped by December 2nd. We also ask that you cap your spending per child at $75.
Mylee's Missions ~ "MM" is an amazing organization that takes care of our greater Portsmouth area, and Christmas is no exception! At Christmas they help families with gifts and meals, but also present the gospel thru testimony and just good 'ol fashioned genuine love.
This year we will help with grocery bag meals. Each bag costs $10 and our goal is 350 bags. You will find MM Envelopes on our Giving Tree at the church each Sunday morning, and you can donate as many bags as you would choose per envelope.
December 1st from 11-3 in the old Portsmouth gymnasium is the event date where the families come and enjoy this time of Christmas. Please fill out a Connect Card to let us know that you would like to help in some capacity. Many hands are needed for this awesome ministry!
The Potter's Kids ~ Cornerstone Naz is supporting 40 Foster Children through The Potter's House this Christmas. For each child, a $40 donation is all it takes toward their Christmas. We provide the donation and The Potter's House does all the shopping! It's a fast and easy way to make a huge impact in the life of a child. You can visit The Giving Tree to pick up your Donation Envelope. These donations are due back December 2nd.
Operation Christmas Child ~ Our N2Y kids are sponsoring "OCC" boxes! These boxes help share the love, hope, and joy of Christmas with kids all around the world. Again, a goal of 50 boxes has been set for this Christmas, so please stop by The Giving Tree to get your box and send a little Christmas around the world! These are due back November 14th.
Crisis Care Kits ~ Each year, the Nazarene denomination fills Crisis Care Kits to be used nationally and internationally by families and communities that have experienced devastation. Our N2Y kids are sponsoring this ministry with a goal of 50 kits this Christmas. Each kit only costs about $25 to fill. Please stop by The Giving Tree to pick up your kit supplies. You can return them to the church at any time throughout the Christmas Season.
Christmas Benevolence ~ Christmas is a great time to donate to Cornerstone's Benevolence Fund. This fund helps Cornerstone families year 'round when crisis hits home. An illness, job loss, or any kind of devastation can bring financial strain to a family. Cornerstone can help through the Benevolence Fund. Please visit The Giving Tree to pick up a Donation Envelope. You can bring your donation back any time throughout the Christmas Season.
