Dear Valued Host Pastors and Leaders,
We are grateful for every host church, business, donor, and volunteer for your love and support in helping us add value and hope to many precious lives with our Servant Sock Christmas Project to our Northern Communities.
We are honored to have reached 52 First Nations communities in 12 years in Ontario with our Servant Sock Christmas and recently started personal growth, leadership, and youth max training. We could not have done this without God and each of you. Thank you for your love and support!
During COVID it has been hard for everyone, especially to the north. We have served a few communities who were in a crisis from the loss of youth to suicide and other tragic issues. We sense a need to help our youth, families, and leaders. We are on a late start and walking by faith on this journey. Value your team support in helping us make a difference together.
Four areas you can help serve are ......
1. Host Church - have members stuff a needed quota of stocking for children. Members who sponsor children can buy gifts that help bring biblical education, strategy, comfort, warmth, love, value & hygiene, fun. Examples will be sent by email once you confirm. Need to be Ready Oct 4 th for your SSCP launch and have your coordinator/ volunteers ready for launch
2. Family Bundles– prepare items, that will help lighten the load of families who have faced a crisis especially those in grief from loss. Example light healthy snacks, nonexpired packaged foods, toiletries, Hygiene soap, face cloths wipes, flashlights, hand warmers, fun family games ie, Pictionary, journals etc
3. Leadership Bundles prepare with encouraging gifts and healthy, snacks, vitamin C & D, warms socks, gloves, hats, journals. We hope to have a John Maxwell Leadership Bible for every home and other tools to help leaders stand strong.
4. Financial Donation - If you can help with a monthly or a one-time donation, we, thank you in advance. You can donate on our website, email transfer, or by cheque sent to the address below.
We value your confirmation of support in 1 or more of these areas. Every year we have served 800-1000 children and have our stockings on order. We may be short this year and will need to gather items for family bundles to make up the difference. We are working on details and value your confirmed support as a host church business, and individual.
We will need churches to be ready to start for SSCP October 4 th if possible. This will give time to gather for pick up / drop off week Oct 25 th & Nov 1, 2020. We may have a team to pick up at a few locations but do value your help in the drop off plan for the afternoon on dates above in Brampton.
We start early due to the shipping process in which could be behind due to COVID. We need to work on logistics and value all your help.
We often travel to two communities during each SSCP and are praying and seeking the Lord on his plan for this year. We believe a healing and transformational revival will break out in the north and we need people to stand and believe with us Act 19:11, Psalm 77:14, Psalm 107:20 and declare a hedge of protection over every life.
rWe look forward to growing with your key leadership team to help add value, assist in the healing, and see precious lives rise in purpose. Thank You! We Look forward to hearing from you soon!
