Every year since 1996, Johns Creek Baptist Church has helped to provide Christmas gifts for children through a program we have called “Holiday Support.” As you might imagine, the impact this year of the 2020 pandemic has resulted in an even greater need to support families who are struggling to provide Christmas gifts for their kids.

Given the challenges of social-distancing and safety protocols, the primary vehicle for this year’s support will be our financial donations. There will be a limited number of very safe and specific volunteer opportunities but the primary way, which will have the greatest impact for the kids, will be through what we donate.

For more information on the ways you can help, please see below. Donate Now by clicking the button below and selecting “Christmas for Kids” as your fund selection or send your check payable to Johns Creek Baptist Church, PO Box 5100, Alpharetta, GA 30023-5100.
