Operation Bear Hug!

This Christmas, Christ Episcopal, Somers Point, will be participating in Operation Bear Hug. This project spreads Christmas comfort to residents dwelling within our local care centers and the homebound. We would like our parish family to help make this year‘s operation a success by donating a bear. After we collect the bears, a contingent of youth and volunteers will hand-deliver them around Christmas. More information to follow.

Giving envelopes for the repair are available in back of the church, just ask an usher, or by our online giving here!
