The Christmas Store Needs Volunteers!
The Christmas Store is a collaboratively produced pop-up shop that provides a fun and dignified shopping experience for Lakewood families in need. You can help us support this community effort in two ways:

Shop for Gifts: Monday, Dec. 3 at 6pm
Meet us at Chick-fil-A in Rocky River (20801 Center Ridge Rd., Rocky River, 44116) for a quick dinner and shopping at Target. Our church leadership team has allocated financial resources to this effort which means you do the shopping and we’ll pay for the gifts!

Staff the Store: Wednesday, Dec. 5, or Saturday, Dec. 15, 10am-2pm
Sign up for a two-hour shift to help staff the store located at Waterbury and Madison (an exact address will be provided soon). You’ll help by assisting shoppers, wrapping presents, and restocking the shelves.

To sign up for either opportunity, visit

Advent: The Christmas Journey
Parents, we are excited to provide you with a fun and free resource to help you celebrate Advent with your family. Advent: The Christmas Journey  is an activity booklet and reading plan that provides a picture for your children to color each day, along with a Bible story for you to read together. Our hope is that by reading stories from the entirety of the Bible together, your family will see that the coming of Jesus was prophesied and anticipated long before His arrival, and that the Christmas story doesn’t begin with Mary and Joseph, but begins in Genesis 3. Pick up your free copies on Sunday at the Welcome Area table or download the PDF here!
