Celebrations of Giving

Warm winter coats hanging on a rack
In the second chapter of Matthew, wise men from are overwhelmed with joy to find the child born as king of the Jews. What do they do? Pay Him homage by giving treasures of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. 
 
During Advent, Woodhaven celebrated the gift of Christ by sharing our time and treasures in our community. Thanks to the generosity of our church family, Woodhaven on Mission was able to give $2,500 to Dorcas Ministry and $2,500 to the Western Wake Crisis Ministry.
 
Woodhaven members surrounded the Christmas tree with new toys to share with homeless and needy families through the Lost Sheep Outreach Ministry. Our youth wrapped dozens and dozens of the toys during a holiday lock in, and Woodhaven members helped to distribute the gifts during the Lost Sheep Christmas Celebration
 
The warmth of giving continues during the month of January. We’ll be collecting new and gently used winter coats, hats and gloves for the Lost Sheep Outreach Ministry. Please wash all used items, and don’t forget to empty the pockets! Bring all items to the lobby area outside the Sanctuary.
