Christmas in the Northside

Christmas in the Northside

Ingomar Church volunteers have been serving meals in the Northside at Daily Bread for over 30 years. It is a way to provide support to those in need in our community by providing a hot meal, friendship and prayer.

For the past 3 years, with the help of the Missions Outreach Committee and our church members, we have provided adult & children gift bags, cookies, and a special meal at the last Daily Bread time before Christmas.

This year we will be serving on Thursday, December 22. We are able to take 15-20 volunteers to help serve, visit with people, and help us to make this a festive occasion. We would love for someone to join us that with a keyboard to play Christmas music!

Here are ways that you can help:

  • Purchase items for gift bags. We are taking gift bags for 150 people. We have set up a registry on Amazon, Northside Christmas Gift Bags 2022. You can purchase items for the bags from the list and have them sent to the church to arrive by December 12. We will assemble the gift bags the week before Christmas.
  • Bake and donate cookies. Please put them in a plastic container marked for Daily Bread with the quantity included. Cookies can be placed in the freezers in the Fellowship Hall Kitchen or dropped off at the church office.
  • Donate Christmas Cards signed ‘Merry Christmas! Your friends at Ingomar Church”
  • Volunteer to help serve on the 22nd. Volunteers must be at least 13 years old.

Christmas is a very hard time for the people we serve! We want to make them feel the love of Christ and the love of Ingomar Church. At least 60% of the people we serve are homeless. The others live in low-income housing, homes without utilities and deal with food insecurity. We need your help to make this a special day for them!

If you have questions or would like to volunteer, please email Paula Dahm through IConnect.
