UMOM Adopt-a-Family and Wesley Adopt-a-Child Programs

This Advent season, as we wait for the Christ Child to arrive, you are invited to be a light to others, bringing hope and joy and love to those less fortunate.

UMOM New Day Centers, Inc. and the Wesley Community Center provides our church with a list of families and children who would love to have gifts for Christmas, but do not have the means. If you can help, please stop by the table on the patio outside of worship Sunday and follow these steps:

  • Choose a family (UMOM) or child (Wesley)
  • Complete the registration process (forms available on the patio after worship)
  • Choose and Wrap Gifts
  • Identify the gifts with first and last names on each
  • For UMOM: Place all the family gifts in large trash bags and label with the family’s last name
  • For Wesley gifts: Attach child’s ID tag to their 2 gifts
  • Deliver wrapped and bagged gifts to church office no later than Sunday, December 2, 2018. Thank you!
