2022 March to the Manger

An important part of our Advent and Christmas celebration is our traditional March to the Manger, which is an opportunity to give a special Christmas gift to the Christ Child who, being born fully human, has family roots like you, coming from a people, a place, and a story. Please prayerfully consider what gift you can give this Christmas. Then, place your love gift in the enclosed envelope and mail it to the church (1022 New City Road, Chatham, IL 62629) or bring it with you when you attend one of the worship services. This year, your March to the Manger gifts will benefit:

  • Kumler Outreach Ministries in Springfield: A local mission that “meets people where they live, feeding the hungry, caring for the sick and helping clothe people.”
  • Midwest Mission Distribution Center: An international mission that “serves to show God’s love in a practical way to people around the corner and around the world.”
  • The Youth Service Bureau:“ADCFS licensed child welfare agency that provides services to youth and their family members in the five counties of Sangamon, Christian, Mason, Menard, and Logan Counties.”
