As we celebrate the birth of God’s greatest gift to us, the Mission and Service Ministry Group invites you to participate in the annual Alternative Gifts program.

This is an opportunity to give a gift that honors someone and, at the same time, supports one or more Lewinsville mission projects. Look for additional information at the Alternative Gifts table in St. Andrews Hall after each Sunday worship service during Advent.

An Alternative Gift is a wonderful and easy way to honor loved ones, friends, teachers, neighbors, service providers, and others on your Christmas gift list and simultaneously provide a tax-deductible gift to support one or more Lewinsville mission projects. Make a list of the people you wish to honor in this meaningful way, identify the organization(s) you wish to support with your charitable contribution, obtain one of the beautiful Alternative Gift cards for each person you are honoring, and write one check (payable to Lewinsville Presbyterian Church) for your selections.

The Mission and Service Ministry Group is highlighting the following organizations for your special support:

  • Friends of the Lewinsville (meal subsidy program)
  • Homestretch
  • United Orphanage and Academy (Moi’s Bridge, Kenya)
  • Falls Church Homeless Shelter
  • Second Story
  • S.H.A.R.E.

You may also support any of the other organizations/projects listed in the Lewinsville Mission Handbook. To learn more about these organizations and reference the Mission Handbook, visit the Alternative Gifts table in St. Andrews Hall each Sunday during Advent (December 2, 9, 16 and 23).
