It’s the most wonderful time of the year as we celebrate the birth of our Savior, Jesus! Christmas is a season of love and miracles, and the perfect time to demonstrate generosity. Let’s unite to take the story of Christmas—the story of love, hope, and redemption—to our neighbors, community, and the world! We want to do three things between now and the end of the year:

Give of our financial resources to enrich the lives of others

Invite someone who is not connected to a Bible-believing church to attend Thomas Road‘s Virginia Christmas Spectacular, and/or our Christmas Eve service and then, join us for a Worship service in New Year.

Go make a difference by volunteering here at church and by intentionally serving someone in your neighborhood.

Gather your family, friends, and/or Life Group and put our faith into action! Take a look over this packet, choose how you’ll Give, Invite, and Go. Share your experience with us at trbc.org/christmas. Don’t forget to tag us on social media and add #trchristmas to your posts. We can’t wait to see what God is going to do this Christmas season.

Christmas Eve
Services

 

The Christmas season involves so many great traditions: decorations, celebrations, and gift giving.  Give yourself a gift this Christmas by taking time out to reflect on the awe and wonder that this season brings. It all began that first Christmas, when Jesus came to offer us hope for the future. Let’s celebrate the greatest gift ever, together, at Thomas Road. 

We would love to see you at one of our services on December 24 at 3:00 pm or 5:00 pm. 

Opportunities
to give this Christmas

Gift Cards  | We are expanding our outreach to help bring Christmas cheer to as many as possible:
•Middle & High School brothers and sisters of the younger adopted angels who attend our Christmas party
•Shut-in’s and Widows from our ministry  
• Refugee families
Donate $25 – $50 Visa/Master Cards to help bless many this Christmas season. Drop your cards off at the Christmas at Thomas Road table in the lobby.

Holiday Meal Cards |This year, we are able to purchase $25 meal cards to help provide a Christmas dinner for those in our community and beyond. These cards are good for the purchase of a turkey or ham plus produce. We’d like to give each family that attends our Christmas party, as well as the 150 families with the Hope Community Center, one of these gift cards.  We encourage you to purchase TWO meal cards…one to bless a family through our initiatives, and one to bless a friend YOU know who needs help this year. Holiday Meal Cards may be purchased online at trbc.org, by texting trmeal to 77977, or in person at the Christmas at Thomas Road  tables on Main Street.  
**Personal gift card purchases are available for pick up on Sunday mornings from November 25 – December 9 at the Christmas at Thomas Road tables in the main lobby.**
 
Toys and Gifts (Ages 0-12) | We are partnering with Ayman and Mary Lolas with the Hope Community Center in Northern Virginia to help bring Christmas to 150 Arab and Muslim refugee children and their families.  Please bring your unwrapped gifts to the collection bins located in our lobby by December 16. 
 
Year End Gift | We’re focusing on three countries this year.
Guatemala: Provide a Christmas party for our adopted village, Pueblo del Rio, including food for the families and gifts for the children.
Bolivia: Supply scholarships for impoverished children to attend Word of Life Camp in Cochabamba plus build a Vocational Center to teach skills to those also studying for the ministry.
Haiti:  Joining with our long time mission partners, Wallace and Eleanor Turnbull and the Baptist Haiti Mission, to help them provide Pastoral training, health services, church development, and education to the missionaries and ministers in Haiti. 

Make a Difference
In Your Own Neighborhood

From now till the end of the year, we challenge you to make an impact by volunteering somewhere in our ministry during the month of December.  And, we encourage you to get to know your neighbors this holiday season. Ask the Lord for opportunities to bless and encourage someone. 

Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.
Phillippians 2:4
