Last week, we kickoff the Christmas festivities with the 95th annual Kiwanis Christmas Party where the Bellevue Kiwanis Club (along with Mr. & Mrs. Claus of course) surprised our individuals at the Care Center with gifts.
On Friday evening, Vermilion Grace UMC hosted our Annual Community Services Christmas party. All of our Community Services individuals will gathered together for a meal, shared in Christmas caroling and, of course, received their Christmas presents. The Care Center house parties will begin this week and will continue on weeknights leading up to Christmas.
We are always overwhelmed by the love shown to our individuals during the Christmas season. This year, we had more churches than ever before graciously “adopt” Flat Rock for Christmas. This gave us such peace to know that our individuals were receiving exactly what they asked for this Christmas.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the individual donors, churches and groups who donated gift(s) to Flat Rock Homes and/or donated their time to help wrap Christmas presents this year. A special thank you to the Bellevue Kiwanis Club, Wellington UMC, and Westlake UMC for their willingness to “adopt” Flat Rock as a part of their Christmas mission outreach.
I wish I could capture the joy, the smiles and the laughter from our individuals as they open their Christmas presents every year and share it with you because that joy and love is what sharing the joy and love of Christ’s birth is all about.
We are blessed at Flat Rock because of your kindness. Thank you for helping make Christmas merry and bright for our individuals!We wish a very merry and blessed Christmas to you and yours as you celebrate Christmas!
