Second Mile would like you to join us again this year as we love the community by sharing ‘Comfort and Joy,’ our annual Christmas Outreach. We would like to share the gift of comfort by giving each family that comes to Second Mile a pair of socks, a hat, and/or gloves for each of their children, and a blanket for their family. We also want to share the joy that comes from knowing Christ by giving a gospel-centered Christmas book to each family.

We are asking the church body to donate:

  • Age/gender appropriate socks, hats, and gloves
  • Neutral throw blankets
  • Or money for the purchase of these items – financial gifts and checks can be made out to ‘Second Mile – Christmas Outreach’

We have listed below what types of socks, hats, and gloves we are asking each family to provide to make sure we get enough of each type. Beginning Each Sunday starting November 20th through December 4th, you can bring your donations to the Christmas Store collection table at ConnectingPoint. We will have a sample provided to show what we are gifting this year. You may also bring donations during the week for drop off at SMM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 9 until noon.

Please also consider the giving of your time during the day M/W/F between Dec 2 and Dec 16 to help pass out gifts to these families. Families are welcome to serve! Contact Lynn Cruse at to sign up.
