For our annual Christmas Giving Project this year, we are providing gifts, hampers, and blessings to families, seniors and other individuals in need through partnerships with programs run by Oceanside Christmas Wishes and Island Crisis Care Society. In supporting both of these programs, the goal is to help as many people as possible that may not be eligible or accepted through other community programs.


Island Crisis Care Society helps people in crisis stabilize and find the support, resources, and services they need to recover and be well.  Currently, they run 12 programs across 7 sites where they address the needs of over 250 individuals a day who have experienced or are at risk of homelessness.  

Donations to this program will help to provide a Christmas gift (think a stocking!) to the 250 daily clients of ICCS. This simple gift and act of generosity shows those going through some of the most difficult of circumstances that they are valued and that someone cares.

Physical donations can be dropped off at the church during office hours until December 5th. Please see below for donation ideas.


Oceanside Christmas Wishes is a local volunteer run organization supporting Oceanside area families and seniors in need at Christmas using donations local residents and provisioning remaining needs from sponsors. The goal is to lessen financial burdens by tackling some of the wants and needs at Christmas as well as providing a food hamper to each family or senior being supported.

Nominations are open and will be closing December 1st. If you know of, or are, a family or an isolated senior needing support this year, please submit a self-nomination or nominate someone else to be supported through the program. ([email protected])

Lists of needed items are still being compiled, but initial needs include diapers in various sizes, wipes, food, gift certificates for groceries/gas, and support with covering overwhelming bills as a result of rising inflation.

Financial contributions can be made by e-transfer to [email protected].

Physical donations can be dropped off at the church during office hours.
