Winter church begins Nov. 1. The Community Church of SunBird (CCSB) is excited to welcome back our SunBird snowbird friends. For those who stayed for the summer, we say, “Thank you for your faithfulness and your fellowship this summer.” It was a great summer at CCSB.
Our first project of the holiday season is well underway. We are filling shoeboxes for children here and around the world for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. Everyone in the SunBird community is welcome to join us in filling a box, contributing items for boxes, or donating to the project. Please contact Linda Ward if you want to join us and/or want more information. Our goal this year is 250 boxes, and our deadline is Nov. 13.
As Samaritan’s Purse winds down, we begin preparations for our sponsorship of the children’s Christmas program at the Latin American Church of the Nazarene in downtown Chandler. CCSB members choose a gift tag for a child and buy them a Christmas gift. We deliver their gifts the afternoon of their children’s program, watch their performance, eat pizza with them, and watch them open their gifts. What a blessing to see the joy on their faces. Later, during the month of February, we collect clothing for their church to help the families in their community.
Believe it or not, Christmas is just around the corner. We want to invite all of you to join us for Christmas Eve services this year as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Christ.
Please join us for a non-denominational, inspiring message from one of our gifted pastors. We meet every Sunday at 9 a.m. in the ballroom. See you there!
