Make the Holidays Special for Someone in Need on Sunday, October 8, 2017
On Sunday, October 8, after our regular Sunday offering collection, please prepare to open your heart and give generously to others during the holiday season. Unity of SA traditionally reaches out to those who might not have resources to make the holiday special or are in circumstances that make it difficult to celebrate at Thanksgiving and Christmastime.
It’s one of the many ways we live our core values of Loving, Transforming, Empowering, Community, and Welcoming. Unity Church of San Antonio usually provides a luncheon for Thanksgiving for pediatric patients, their families, and University hospital staff on Thanksgiving. Later in the Christmas season, we often host a holiday event for the residents at a nearby senior supported living center. Our Christmas outreach for residents of the Pecan Hill Apartments usually includes a holiday luncheon and caroling, as well as gift bags. The residents of Pecan Hill look forward to this event every year. For some of the residents, it is the only Christmas celebration they will attend.
To provide all this, funds are needed for the food and gift bags. After your usual Sunday donation or tithe on Sunday, October 8, 2017, plan to offer some funds for our holiday outreach events. Please give, if you can, to make the holiday special for others, and consider clearing your calendar so that you can volunteer. Sign-up sheets will be available soon. We appreciate your generosity. Thank you!
