The Giving Experience

The Giving Experience event will take place again this year in a little different style to keep everyone’s health and safety in mind. The dates for this event will be Saturday, December 19th and Sunday, December 20th, times of deliveries will be agreed upon by recipient and delivering families. There are 3 different opportunities available– participation in one or more functions is welcome:  

1. Individuals and Families sign-up to deliver a prepared gift basket.  This will be done in a safe, no-contact method.  Delivery area is mainly the Oostburg School District (Oostburg, Gibbsville & Hingham).  There is a sign-up sheet on the bulletin board or you can sign-up by emailing Lorann @ ltenhaken@wi.rr.comor text at 262-573-5406.  Please sign-up by Sunday, Nov. 29th.

2. Donations of gift cards to add to the gift baskets – suggested values between $10 – $25 per card.  Gift cards for gas, or for local grocery stores including Walmart and Meijer so the recipient can purchase groceries, personal items or perhaps small Christmas gifts.

3. Write Christmas cards – cards with a thoughtful note or words of encouragement to be included in baskets.

As we get closer to the delivery dates there will be a location under the carport to drop off cards and a basket in the narthex. If you know of a family in need or someone that could use some additional Christmas cheer, please provide that info to Pastor Brian via email at or by calling the church office.

More detailed information about this event will be communicated in upcoming weeks.
