The time has come for the launch of Christmas for Kids 2023, and we need YOU!!
Christmas for Kids is an opportunity for every member of JCBC to participate in sharing the love of Christ with families in need in meaningful ways.
JCBC is partnering with three local mission partners in helping to provide Christmas to families this year!
- Christmas in the Neighborhood: Adopt a Family
Since 2014, JCBC has partnered with Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries which serves the needs of at-risk families in our area. This year, NCM is hosting Christmas in the Neighborhood which allows churches to adopt families who could use help providing gifts for their children. JCBC has received the wish lists of 50 NCM families. Community groups can choose to adopt a family for which to purchase gifts. JCBC will provide Bibles for each family!
- The Place of Forsyth Winter Coat Drive
JCBC is partnering with The Place of Forsyth to collect new winter coats for children of any age and size. Families and individuals can bring winter coats to the church for The Place.
- Bikes For Kids
Now in our 17th year of partnership with North Fulton Community Charities, JCBC will collect and contribute new and gently used bicycles and tricycles for kids in Alpharetta, Johns Creek, Roswell, and surrounding areas. Donated bikes must be clean and in working condition.
How YOU Can Mobilize to Help!
- Donate Financially
With your donations, JCBC shoppers will purchase gifts for the families not covered by the community groups, and additional items for the other partners to aid in the ministries they are providing this Christmas. We will also be providing a Bible for each family. There are three easy ways to donate:
- Give online at jcbc.org.
- Mail to: Johns Creek Baptist Church P.O. Box 5100, Alpharetta, GA 30023-5100.
- Drop off your donation, in person, at the church.
- Donate Coats
Donate a new coat for a child of any age or size.
- Donate a Bike
Drop off new or slightly used bicycles or tricycles at the church during office hours Monday through Friday, or on Sunday mornings.
You can volunteer with JCBC helping us to organize the gifts that are donated. You can also volunteer at Neighborhood Cooperative Ministries during specific hours for Christmas in the Neighborhood or at The Place of Forsyth Holiday House. We are happy to connect you!
