                                         Project Agape Christmas Boxes

Project Agape LogoChristmas is only a few months away, and that means it’s time to start filling those familiar shoe boxes with much-needed supplies and gifts for the thousands of children who are served by Project Agape.

Project Agape is a ministry of the United Methodist churches throughout North Carolina. It provides humanitarian aid to our Armenian Christian brothers and sisters who live over 6,000 miles away in the Kashatagh region of the Republic of Artsakh, a former part of the Soviet Union located on the western border of Armenia.

The Christmas Box project has grown from Agape staff giving out 255 boxes in 2009 to over 5,000 boxes in 2017. For many of the children, these are the only Christmas presents they will receive during the Holy Season, and they anticipate the arrival of the boxes all year long.

We are kicking off the Christmas Box project at HUMC on Sunday, August 26. Please stop by the table in the front lobby to pick up a box or two. During the week, boxes and information sheets will also be available inthe lobby.

Filled shoe boxes are due back to the church by Sunday, September 23 so we can meet the deadline of delivering them to the Mission Response Center by October 1.
