- January 27 – Church Conference after Worship
. . . followed by a pot-luck lunch
The monthly wrap-up for December included three stories of transformation and outreach, one of which was about Faith United Methodist Church. That story is: “Every year, Faith UMC has a free breakfast with Santa on the first Saturday in December; the only cost for the meal and a photo with Santa is a donation to the food shelf that the church supports. Most people who come are not from the congregation, and some families have been coming for years. This year, a young mother came in with her daughter. The photographer recognized her from previous years and asked about her son who usually comes with them. The mother said he was sick and waiting in the car but her daughter didn’t want to miss seeing Santa. After the daughter sat on Santa’s lap and had her picture taken, Santa went out to the car and brought the little boy a gift bag and a stuffed animal. The photographer also went out to the car and took a photo of the little boy with Santa. The little boy was overcome with joy and exclaimed, ‘I got to see the real Santa!’ Soon, the mom was crying, the photographer was crying, and even Santa was wiping away a tear. A simple act of kindness gave this family a Christmas gift they’ll not soon forget. Sometimes reaching out to the community brings blessings in the most unusual places.”
