Christmas Giving 2015

Christmas Giving Project
This year Light of Christ is partnering with The Salvation Army to adopt Amanda and her four children. You can help by praying, shopping for gifts that fit each child’s needs/wants, or by donating money or Walmart gift cards. To give, you can write out a check to Light of Christ, put “Christmas Giving Project” in the memo line and place it in the offering plate on Sunday.

Christmas Eve Offering
Each Christmas Eve Light of Christ takes up an offering for the poor and underserved in our community. This year we will be giving our Christmas Eve Offering to Racine Vocational Ministry.
Racine Vocational Ministry started in 2002 with the sole purpose of aiding those with employment challenges a way back into the job market. We do so by addressing the life skill challenges in the life of each individual participant. Challenges could be poor work history, addiction, criminal record, lack of education, lack of specific job skill or trade, authority issues or homelessness. RVM supports a participants efforts to change habits and attitudes that support human dignity and a respect for hard work.
Since 2002 over 3300 people have been aided in going back to work at an average wage of $11.38 an hour. Many of these workers have made significant changes in their lives leading to living wages, health insurance, permanent housing and home ownership.
Many have also begun to realize how important a life of faith is to happiness, forgiveness, and motivation.
Please give generously to support the ministry of RVM.
