For decades the City Mission Society (CMS) Christmas Shop has served as a catalyst for people of faith to find ways to reach out to others. CMS’s successful Christmas Shop brings hope and joy to children and families in the most need during the holiday season. CMS collects thousands of gift items, which are provided, collected, and sorted by volunteers from dozens of congregations, youth groups, college students, and several businesses.
On Sunday, December 8, First Church will be collecting gifts for the Christmas Shops during our Morning Worship. See below the list of requested gifts that can help families and children in need. CMS accepts only NEW items. Please no food, household, or jewelry items.
