Christmas Care 2022

Christmas Care 2022

Thank you for reaching out to those in need through our holiday ministries!

Our goal this year is to provide prayer and gifts for 423 shelter residents in Plymouth, Minneapolis, and St. Paul. You may sign up to sponsor someone at the Giving Tables in the narthex or on line at We are closing in on our gift drop-off deadline of Dec. 11 and we welcome your participation!

Additionally, we are hoping to receive 700 new books for children of all ages, and funds for holiday food baskets for families in the Phillips neighborhood, which will be matched up to $25,000. Funds above and beyond holiday baskets will feed vulnerable families into the new year through the many programs of Community Bridge/Messiah. Pick up a brochure with all the details in the atrium, or download the brochure PDF.

Please know that your gifts and prayers will put smiles on the faces of men, women, and children, and let them know someone is thinking of them. Thank you.
