CHRISTMAS OUTREACH TO CHILDREN

Local hospital outreach & global missions outreach

On behalf of Pastors Gregory and Grace Dickow, we wanted to thank you for being a part of our Christmas outreach experience by sponsoring a child’s gift this holiday.

We have the beautiful opportunity to bring Christmas to kids who, due to health reasons, will be in the hospital on Christmas Day, and we are also providing gifts for children from low-income families throughout the Chicagoland area. As a Global Church, we are also providing financial support to our Family of Churches, in order to bless the children in their communities this holiday season. We are partnered with Ministries in Ukraine, Peru, India, and Guatemala. 🌍 To give, click here.

To sponsor a child, click one of the ornaments on our 🎄Tree of Dreams and read their story. Once you choose a child to shop for, fill out the form for next steps. If you’re a part of our global family in another city or country, but would like to bless a child this Christmas, simply click here to donate and follow the prompts. Our Christmas elves will purchase, wrap, and deliver a gift on your behalf for all local kids. The sponsored families are truly grateful for our support this Christmas. Our ministry partners in the countries above will be distributing gifts on our behalf. We are so thankful for you! 🎁

Story: Jocelyn’s baby brother Octavio is a very strong baby with Down syndrome––a champion fighter. Having never even known about Down syndrome prior, caring for Octavio has been challenging for this family and they have faced several hardships along the way. For almost 5 months, Octavio was sick in the hospital. Seeing Octavio struggling and thinking he wasn’t going to make it was far too painful for his family. But God kept Octavio safe and the Holy Spirit has been ever-present with each of them through everything. Octavio and his family are so very grateful that he is still here.
