Sharing the Hope of Christmas is especially important during this difficult year. The pandemic has caused stress, worry, anxiety, and hopelessness for so many. We will be sharing the joy of Christmas by giving gifts to international seafarers and local port workers. Each gift will cost about $10 and will include an insulated mug, Christmas devotional, New Testament, treats, and more!
Would you pray that these gifts help to provide the opportunity for us to share the true meaning of Christmas? Intercede on behalf of the seafarers and port workers. Pray that they will be open to hearing the story of Christmas. Pray for our chaplains as they bring the gifts to those in the port and pray that God will prepare the way for us to share the Gospel.
Would you donate financially to help us purchase gifts?
We give each seafarer a gift that costs about $10. You can also send a signed Christmas card for each $10 gift you make that we will include with your gift so the recipients know someone cares for them.
Would you consider making some homemade treats for us to include with the Christmas gifts? Make bags of treats or cookies for us to include with the Christmas gifts. This additional personal touch will mean so much to the seafarers who are not able to be at home for the holidays.
Would you get involved by hosting a Christmas party? Parties may look different this year because of the pandemic, however we still plan to share joy in safe ways. Small groups are welcome to help plan Christmas party for seafarers. Sing carols and share the joy of the season with friends from around the world.
Help us purchase gifts by donating financially. We give each seafarer a gift that costs about $10. Please consider sending a signed Christmas card for each $10 gift you donate so recipients know someone cares for them and is praying for them.
We would appreciate having your Christmas donation by December 1 to allow us enough time to purchase and assemble the gifts.
