  • In Bed by Christmas

    Luke 2:8-20 Lifts us up again this year as we reflect on its text.  Who can help but smile as you read the familiar verses of the angel sharing the good news “…Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.”  As the world embraces this message as it prepares for the holiday season, Bed Start prepares to carry this message to our community by lifting children off the floor.  Our faith calls us as individuals to share this good news.  How do you plan to do this, to exercise your faith, this Christmas?  The shepherds brought gifts to the baby in the manger.  What a wonderful action we can emulate today.  Be a shepherd!  Bring gifts of beds and household items to our neighbors in need.  Pull your friends and family together this season and make your own trek into our community to carry this message. 

    For details on dates and times when volunteers are needed, contact Suzette Boese at 214-641-4492 or visit Bed Start’s website.  If you’re not able to physically assist, be a shepherd by making your financial contributions directly to Bed Start with a check that can still be dropped at the church or made online at www.crumc.org/give. Visit their website for more information and to serve.

    You can also purchase reusable shopping bags to benefit Bed Start for $5 each. Contact Suzette Boese
