A Holiday Season of Giving, Sharing, and Community
The holiday season provides a time of community, love, and hope. But the holidays can also be a difficult time, especially for those grieving and/or struggling financially. Debt, poverty, hunger and homelessness have only been exacerbated by the pandemic.
Throughout the upcoming holidays, Christ Church Easton hopes to collect gift cards from Stop & Shop, Target, ShopRite and others to offer its priest the means to help those in need. In thanksgiving for all we have been blessed with, please consider purchasing gift cards of $25 when you are out shopping and drop them at the church office (59 Church Rd.).
Or please reach out to Rev. Ally Brundige (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are in need or know someone in need. Confidentiality will be kept, though in-person drop offs or pick ups of gift cards are required.
During December, we also will be hosting a “Baby Shower for Jesus” and ask that diapers and gift cards be dropped off at the church to give to families in need. Unused gift cards will given to the Bridgeport Rescue Mission.
“We at Christ Church seek to build and be a community of love in our church, town, and world,” Rev. Ally said. “We hope by these small tokens, we might come closer together in sharing the riches of the holiday season.”
Please join us for the tree lighting, carol sing and bonfire on Dec. 4 at 5 p.m. at 59 Church Road, Easton (rain date Dec. 5).
