The Blessing Christmas Tree

Help bring the miracle of Christmas into a child's life this year by helping the orphanage in Colina Del Luz Mexico. Let's share the blessings and help the Children's wishes come true this season. To share the joy and blessings to a child this Christmas please visit our Christmas tree located in the main sanctuary which is decorated with the child's name, age, and Chistmas wishes. We ask that all donated items be placed in a shoebox. Thank you, let's show the children that Jesus is the reason for the season.
