South Serves: Christmas Gifts for the City
We are challenging everyone in our church to participate in one of our volunteer opportunities over the Christmas season. As each of us do something small to remind ourselves what the season is really about, we join with our entire community in something much bigger, a celebration of Jesus that reflects Jesus to our city.

Food Bank Gift Mart
Come alongside our Food Bank for this year’s “Gift Mart”. By shopping for essentials and special gifts, you can help our Food Bank recipients have a beautiful family Christmas. Deliver items to the church on December 10th or help host the “Gift Mart” on December 16th where our guests can pick out some family essentials, and parents will get to choose a special gift per child. We have volunteer opportunities for gift sorters, hosts, gift wrappers, and more! If you have any questions about volunteering with the Gift Mart, please contact June Wiegert at [email protected]mail.com.
North Littleton Promise Party Christmas Posada
The North Littleton Promise Christmas Posada is an annual Christmas celebration for all of the families who are a part of their organization. The children are a part of their after school/summer and soccer programs. The purpose is to be together with the NLP Family, watch a short program from the kids and coordinated by parents, share a meal prepared by our families, celebrate Christmas and what the Lord has done this year. It’s basically a big family Christmas party! It will be held on December 17th at 5:30pm at Littleton United Methodist Church, 5894 S. Datura in Littleton. We’re asking 50 volunteers to serve in various capacities at shifts during the day to greet, serve food, facilitate crafts, lead games, and more. This is a great way for us to invest in our local city ad to help another local nonprofit have a great outreach this Christmas season! If you have any questions about volunteering at Posada, please contact Erica at [email protected].
Family Promise guest are arriving Christmas Eve! We host families every quarter, but we’re dreaming of making this stay an over-the-top experience. In every room, we’d like to have a Christmas tree with presents and decoration, as well as host a special Christmas Day Dinner to bless our guests. You can help! We need drivers, shoppers, gift wrappers, decorators, servers, and more to pull off this special week. If you have any questions about Family Promise, please contact Dan Elliot at [email protected].
Christmas Eve One Time Serve
We’re working to get the house ready for guests, and we’re “all hands on deck” to create a special experience this Christmas Eve. Help us make this day special for our regular first time guests by serving once. If you’ve been thinking about serving at South, but aren’t sure where to plug in, this is a great opportunity to give something a try! Some ways to volunteer are with parking, greeting, welcoming, kid’s ministry, and setup/teardown. If you have any questions about volunteering on Christmas eve, please contact Yvonne Biel at [email protected].
Thank you to everyone who has signed up to serve!
