In the Christmas Shoppe, you’ll be able to purchase items from countries in which we are engaged in missions–Honduras and Bangladesh. We purchased the items when our teams were there to impact the local economy. Now, we’ll be selling the items and sending the profit back to the ministries in those countries so that the gospel can go even further.
If you feel like you don’t really need any of the products from Honduras or Bangladesh and still want to impact the Kingdom, you can choose an ornament from our Giving Trees at the Love is Why wall. By choosing an ornament from a Giving Tree, you can help one of the following:
Isaiah 117 House – When a child is removed from his/her home by a DCS worker, they often have nowhere to go and nothing with them while they await placement in foster care. Isaiah 117 House provides a warm and caring environment for these children. Your gifts will help provide clothing, shoes, food and other needs for these kids in a traumatic situation. https://isaiah117house.com/
Bridge Refugee Services – Individuals and families have faced great trauma as they have fled from war, suffering and persecution in their home countries. You have the opportunity to them rebuild their lives so that they may become productive, contributing members of the community.
MOMentum Network -When a single mom succeeds, her child(ren) and our community are more likely to thrive. By helping to provide support, MOMentum helps to build generational transformation. Your gifts help to provide transportation, opportunities for life-skills education programs and community for the moms.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace – Children are more able to succeed when they get a good night’s sleep. Sleep in Heavenly Peace seeks to end the problem of bedlessness here in Chattanooga. Volunteers build beds, deliver them and set them up so that no child has to sleep on the floor. Your generosity provides sheets, comforters and materials for the beds.
- Feed My Starving Children – Hope starts with food. FMSC works with food distribution partners that stay with communities for the long haul, empowering them to move from relief to development. FMSC meals are developed by food science and nutrition professionals to supplement nutritional needs and reduce problems with malnutrition. ChristWay will host our own mobile packing event in 2024, and your donation at the Giving Trees will help offset the cost of the meals we will pack in January. https://www.fmsc.org/
- Goals for Life – In Ghana, there is a two-fold approach to equipping the people for success. Their love of soccer allows us to empower them with an education, both on and off the field, that will equip them with the tools to succeed individually and as a community. Through medical clinics in remote regions of northern Ghana, we bring hope to a people often left with only primitive care. https://www.goalsforlifeproject.com/
You make a donation to the ministry of your choosing (there are amounts from $10 up to $1,000) and keep the ornament from that organization as a reminder to pray for their ministry.
It’s such a fun and easy way to share Jesus right here at home and around the world! The Christmas Shoppe will be open before and after each gathering!
