Often this time of year in movies, tv shows, and music we hear about “Saving Christmas.” This phrase is surrounded by stories of presents and good cheer, reindeer, and replacing Santa. Does this year stand out as a year that Christmas really does need to be saved?
The congregation at Redeemer Covenant Church in Dutton, Michigan is trying to do just that. Save Christmas for 50+ families in their community. Pastor Jack Brown says that the idea came from a suggestion from a member and immediately took off as a way to truly represent the message of Christmas.
Redeemer has begun to receive some real attention for their efforts in “canning” their normal Christmas decorations. By benefiting their already flourishing food pantry Redeemer really is bringing joy to families that might not have reason to celebrate this year.
So we want to know, are you, or your Church, doing something extraordinary this year?
Redeemer Covenant Church is located at 6320 Hanna Lake Ave in Dutton, Mi. With a focus on reaching out to their community, Redeemer has a community garden, houses the community food pantry, and serves monthly with local organizations.
