Gift Drive for Bethel Lutheran Church

Can you believe it! This is our fourth year in partnership sharing the gift of Christmas. While there will be no actual store for shopping as described in Isaiah 55:1-3 without the worries of money, and volunteers wrapping gifts this year you will shop on line and we will make no-contact deliveries or reservations for families to pick up.


This pandemic is stressful and depressing for everyone and your willingness to share with the families selected by Bethel and our ministry partners-- Taste and See Community Meal ministry (four partner community churches-locations), the Bridge-Mission USA (a program for folks living at the margins), Visits to Moms (Bethel’s ministry accompanying children and their guardian to Decatur Correctional Facility to visit their mothers and Bethel Lutheran Church-- will be a blessing to families that were already facing the many challenges before COVID19 of chronic food insecurity, unemployment, unstable housing, and the stress of being “essential front line” workers all magnified by this pandemic. Thank you!  

Here are three options for on-line shopping—
