This Christmas, we encourage you to care for others throughout the month.
This guide will give you a new idea each day, but it's just that - a guide. Feel free to change things up or complete any of these items at any time throughout the month.
We would love to see how you're caring for people, so take photos as you go and either post them on social media using the hashtag #jerseychristmas or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org (they might even be displayed around the church!).
Plan how you can help someone with yard work (leaves/snow/etc.).
Pay for the person behind you in the drive-thru.
Arrange a trip to a senior center or healthcare facility to visit some of the senior members of our Jersey family. Contact the church office for a list of people to visit.
Leave a generous tip for your server.
Pray for your kids and/or grandkids today. You could also pray for the children in your neighborhood.
Offer to help a friend or family member with their gift wrapping.
Babysit for a parent or guardian who needs a night out.
Pray for a family member today.
Surprise a neighbor with freshly baked treats. (And if you can't bake, store-bought treats work too! It's the thought that counts.)
Invite someone to Christmas Eve services. (We've got an e-invite that you can download and text or email to your friends and family at jerseychristmas.org!)
Pray for your co-worker(s) today.
Donate some gently used clothes and toys to someone in need.
Host a family game night.
Write someone a letter and send it to them in the mail. (Yes, the old-fashioned way.)
Invite a friend or family over for dinner.
You know that person you haven't invited to Christmas Eve services yet? It's not too late! Send them an invite today.
Send a gratitude or encouragement email to a co-worker.
Pray for a specific person throughout your day.
Put away your phone and spend some quality time with someone.
Leave a gift for your mail carrier.
Pray for our missionaries overseas.
Be a courteous driver. Let someone merge in front of you.
Pray that God would move in the lives of people at Christmas Eve services across Central Ohio (and beyond).
Wish your family and friends a Merry Christmas and tell them you love them.
