This Christmas, everyone is invited to live out James 2:15-16. Let’s love, serve, and meet the needs of our neighbors in the Name of Jesus.

A SEASON OF GIVING

James 2:15 - 16 says, "Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food.  If one of you says to them, 'Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,' but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it?"

Christmas from Mt. Airy will be about loving and meeting the physical needs of our neighbors.  There is suffering all around us.  This Christmas, you and your family will have multiple opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus.

Choose from the eight projects below to learn more about how you can get involved.  If possible, invite friends or neighbors to join you.  We pray that you will allow God to use you mightily as you serve and go!

Operation Christmas Child

About the Project

 

Over 200 million shoeboxes have been sent worldwide, spreading joy and the love of Christ.  These shoe boxes open doors to share the Gospel.

 

Mt. Airy has packed more than 1,000 boxes.  We need help loading the truck, unpacking the truck at the collection center, and assistance with the $10/box shipping cost.  This is a great way to show children what it means to give to others.

How Can I Help?

Help us move the boxes and load the truck on Wednesday, November 15, after the 6:30pm service.  


Help to unload at the collection center on Sunday, November 19, after the 11:00am service.


Help with the shipping costs of $10/box. All the donations received will enable Samaritan’s Purse to ship to some of the hardest-to-reach places in the world.

Persecuted Christians

About the Project

 

We have had the privilege of praying, feeding, and ministering to hundreds of persecuted Christians from a dangerous country. Their faces must be hidden for security. 

 

They have lost family members, homes, businesses, and all worldly possessions because they would not forsake the Name of their Lord JESUS.  Mt. Airy has partnered with a Church in the country where they are in hiding.

 

James 2:15-16... They cannot be forgotten. Let’s pray and support our brothers and sisters in Christ.

100% of the funds will be sent to the partnering Church to purchase food.

 

How Can I Help?

Give, and then consider going with us in May 2024, when we will deliver and minister to these heroes of the faith.

Kids at Local Schools

About the Project

 

Mt. Airy has been fortunate enough to work with schools throughout our district.


The guidance counselors, principals, and teachers of the schools closest to Mt. Airy have supplied a list of needy students. This project will be like an “Angel Tree.”
 

How Can I Help?

This is great for a family, multiple families, a BSF class, or an auxiliary group. Please see Rob Merritt for specific details. He will supply you with the information sheet and answer any questions.


Thank you for your support and loving kids in our community!

Lottie Moon Christmas Offering

About the Project

 

Lottie Moon was sent as a Southern Baptist missionary to China from 1873-1912. She saw firsthand the world’s greatest problem - LOSTNESS. Meeting so many people who had never heard the Gospel compelled her to write letters to churches pleading for increased prayer and financial support to send and sustain missionaries. This challenge became known as the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering.

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering raises funds for missionaries all over the world. 

How Can I Help?

We will join together December 3 - 10 for a week of prayer for our mission partners throughout the world.  

The focus Sunday will be December 17, where we will encourage those who can to give.  Mt. Airy's goal is to fund at least one missionary for 2024.
