Wondering how to use The Gift for Life in your community?

Here are a few of our suggestions…

  • Host church wide ‘Gift for Life’ preparation parties. Youth groups, Bible study groups, seniors, moms, men and families can work together to assemble and pray over the kits that will be delivered throughout your community.
  • Take advantage of the opportunity to invite your neighbours to your Christmas programs and services! Download and customize the invitation to be printed and inserted in each of the door hanger bags.
  • Find neighbourhood ‘sponsors’ within your congregation to purchase 50 kits for their own neighbourhood.
  • Let local Christian media know about what you are doing! They’d often love to help tell the story of your outreach to inspire others to help reach your community!
  • Provide kits to church members who want to give a gift to their newspaper delivery person, babysitter, garbage collectors, or neighbours – and ask them to insert a gift card for Tim Hortons or a local coffee shop into each bag to create a memorable gift!
  • Dedicate the kits during a regular church prayer time, asking God to touch hearts with His Gift for Life.
  • Add them to your regular Christmas activities. Youth Group visiting a nursing home for a carol sing? Show them to the seniors and ask for their prayers (they may even want a few to distribute themselves!).
  • Encourage families to each share 5 kits in their own neighbourhood. Involve the whole family in the process!
  • Small groups can get creative about the best way to work together to distribute the Gift for Life. Have fun! What about distributing hot chocolate to warm the body, and the Gift for Life to warm the soul?
  • Gather a group to go Christmas carolling, and have kits available for distribution.

The opportunities are endless! Add yours!
