You’re Invited!

Help us continue the tradition of the wise men in honoring Christ with our gifts. Instead of presenting gifts to Christ, we will present them for Christ. Purchase one or more new items to help support HopeKids, Coldwater and Kc Rescue Mission. Bring the new, wrapped gifts on December 2nd and place those gifts before the altar just prior to the 8:30am or 10:30am service.

Please wrap each gift (no bows or ribbons) and clearly mark which organizations they are for. Items should be new in package.

Suggested items can be found below.


  • Gift cards: iTunes (great for teens) or kiddos who can’t have other items delivered while they are in patient at the hospital
  • Subway (there is one inside Children’s Mercy) The Roasterie (there is one inside Children’s Mercy)
