Christmas Eve & March to the Manger

This year’s March to the Manger will be held during our 6:00pm Christmas Eve Service on Saturday, December 24th. Each year, the congregation is given an opportunity to bring a special offering to the manger as a present for Christ and his work through the Missions Ministries/Partnerships of Prospect UMC. This offering, along with the entirety of the offering received during our Christmas Eve service will go to support the missions budget of the church (i.e. We do not keep any of these special offerings for our own budget needs. We give them away as a means of reminding ourselves that “Christmas is not our birthday.”).

This year’s missions budget has been approved at $12,700. Of course, realizing the vision of this budget is fully dependent upon your generosity. As you pray about your gift to the manger & Christmas Eve offering, you might consider a contribution that is equal in value to the most expensive gift you plan to purchase this Christmas or you might consider offering a tithe (10%) of your entire Christmas present budget.

Either way, let us all work together to ensure that Jesus remains at the center of our Christmas focus. Thank you for your gift to the Christ child… a gift that will spread Christmas love to those in need!

Christmas Day Service

This year’s Christmas Sunday Service will be provided to you in an on-line, pre-recorded format. We invite you to enjoy this 30 minute Christmas devotion to celebrate Christ’s birth, with your family and friends this Christmas.

Since we are providing a Christmas recording/devotion with the bells and choir, we will not be taking our regular Sunday morning offering. However, you can still give on-line or by sending a check if you so choose.
