It always amazes me how early we start hearing Christmas music. November has barely begun and already stores are playing Christmas carols.


For many of us, Christmas is a wonderful and beautiful time of the year. It’s a time of enjoying being together as a family, remembering and creating new, fun memories, and driving around together to see the Christmas lights.


But for many other families, Christmas is a discouraging and heart-wrenching season. Many families all around the Cleveland area are going through great hardship and the children will miss the beauty and blessing of the season.


But you can help make a real difference, in Jesus’ name, for many children.


Once again we are partnering with True Freedom Ministries on the Angel Heart outreach.


True Freedom has been ministering to inmates at many area prisons for many years. And some of our Cornerstone members also minister alongside them. The children of parents who are incarcerated may not receive any Christmas gifts from their parent in prison. So True Freedom has partnered with Cornerstone and several other churches to show the love of Christ by purchasing gifts for these children and delivering them along with a Bible and the gospel message.


Each of these parents in prison has communicated with True Freedom the names of their children, their ages, clothing sizes, and toy interests. We at Cornerstone will purchase a clothing item and an age appropriate toy for each child. The church will also include a new Bible and a gospel tract for each child, as well as a nice devotional book related to Christmas for the caregivers.


This Sunday we will have a Christmas tree in the Worship Center with the information for 70 of these children. These children would be so blessed if you could buy gifts for one or two of them. If you do, please bring the unwrapped gifts to the church (new gifts only please) no later than Sunday, November 27. We will have a team of people wrap the gifts the week of November 28th and then a team of people will personally deliver the gifts on Saturday and Sunday, December 3 and 4.

We have had wonderful conversations and gospel presentations with many of these children and caregivers. It has been a great blessing for all who have been involved.


Would you commit to helping us this year?

Three ways to help:
- Purchase gifts for 1 or more children (see the Christmas tree at Cornerstone on Sunday morning)
- Join us at the church to wrap the gifts the week on Wednesday, November 30th
- Volunteer to deliver gifts and the gospel to several homes on December 3 and 4.

Please be praying that God would use this outreach to demonstrate the love of Christ and make a real impact for the gospel.
