Seasonal Giving

As we approach the Christmas season, we want to be courageously generous and support our communities well. As the Church, we seek to show Jesus’ love to those around us in concrete, practical ways. One way you can partner with your campus in serving your community is through a year-end seasonal giving project. Please reference your campus below to see how you can get involved.


This Christmas, the Anderson campus is coming alongside families in our community in two main ways! In November, we collected about 100 coats for youth at Homeland Park Primary School and Westside High School. In December, we will be adopting four families from the Homeland Park area who have been through a season of challenges. We’ll bring them each a Christmas meal and gifts for their whole family. Last year, we developed amazing friendships with these families that have led to continuing discipleship opportunities with these families. If you have questions or want to get involved, please contact your Community Group leader or Kirsten Windbiel ([email protected]).


Downtown will be partnering with Front Porch Housing this Christmas to provide Visa gift cards to families for Christmas shopping! Over the weeks of November 13. 20, and 27 we will be collecting $25 Visa gift cards in the sanctuary to distribute to our Front Porch residents.

We will be partnering with Greer Relief to help with their Renew Christmas Shoppe, which is where our neighbors participate in the Renew program to earn rewards to participate in the Christmas program which includes dinners & toys under the Christmas tree. You can pick up a card with the items needed at the Greer campus beginning November 20 or use the links below. Please drop off unwrapped gifts at the Greer campus on November 20, 27, and December 4 during our Sunday service times.  Volunteers are needed to help set up, stock, manage and take down the Shoppe please use this link to sign-up CMS Volunteer Calendar.
