Sidewalk Christmas Project

In 2015, 24 churches in the Desert Southwest Conference contributed to the Sidewalk Christmas Project. More donations are always needed each year as the Sidewalk program expands. It is hoped that in 2016 additional churches will help "Spread the Smiles" by filling bags, and that those which have participated in the past will continue to do so.

October 24th is the last date for your church to make a commitment as to the number of bags, stuffed animals and/or gift cards will be provided. Commitments before this date are most welcome and encouraged. Churches in the Central East and Central West Districts are to deliver their gifts to the United Methodist Conference Center, 1500 E. Meadowbrook Ave., Phoenix, 84014 on November 30. Churches in the North and South Districts will have a location in their districts that will receive their gifts. Contact Bev Secrist at 480-345-9420 or bevsecrist@cox.net for more information and instruction sheets. So mark your calendars now for Santa's return. Please view either the online slideshow or download the PDF linked below for more details about the gift bags, cards, contact information, and much more. And in the meantime, know that all of us at Sidewalk wish you a joyous holiday that blesses you and our loving and most grace-filled Lord.
