Free Christmas Gift Wrapping

Well, you missed it if you didn’t find us today at Pinnacel Hills Promenade. We had a lot of people donating wrapping materials, money (thanks to Sam’s Club), and time to allow us (Bethel Baptist Church) to offer free Christmas gift wrapping to shoppers, no strings attached… just bows!

It was a blessing – we had a good time and got to serve some people. We could not be overtly evangelistic, but we were able to build a few bridges with folks who wondered why we would not accept donations. One thing that really excites me is that it helps put us in the frame of mind that we simply ought to be serving in the name of Christ expecting nothing in return.

Well, that’s a wrap!

  1. It’s always a good thing to help others. You feel like you really can make a difference in this worlds, and to see that you can put a smile on someone else’s face it is incredible.

    I always like to help others, and don’t expect anything in return, just their gratitude.

  2. It is always nice to see the local church step out and reach the community during the holidays. The Fre Christmas wrapping is a great idea. Thanks for sharing.

  3. That is so sweet. It makes my heart happy to know that they’re people like yourself that beleive in giving.

    I am a grandmom and I am going to start teaching my grand kids the meaning of giving and how important it is.

    Thank you so much for setting an example.

    It’s greatly appreciated.

  4. What a great way to do outreach. Since outreach is the number one purpose of the Church, we need to do it in any way we can. Way to go!
