Sharing God’s Warmth

Did your kids try on their coats this season and find the arms are suddenly too short?! Maybe you ran out to Kohl’s that night to get them something that fits. This “quick fix” is not an option for many of the families we serve. They are already making the choice to spend funds on medication vs. food vs. keeping the lights on. This is a chance for The Church to show God’s love, literally sharing warmth!

Nine churches worked together as the Body of Christ to make a ‘pop-up’ coat shop at First Presbyterian Church of Waukegan. From set-up to serving to tear down, these churches served our neighbors with love.

Serving, by the numbers

In all, The Church shared 116 hours to serve 32 families with 106 coats!! And countless prayers and connections were made. To God be the Glory!
