Each year, we donate our Christmas Eve offering to a local charity whose work is in line with the mission, vision and values of Weller UMC. We do this because Christmas is not our birthday–it’s the birthday of Jesus. The best way to give Jesus a birthday present is to give to those in need.
In 2018, our Christmas offering went to the Frederick Rescue Mission’s Summer Enrichment Camp. This program provides a Christ-based learning experience for children in Thurmont who stand to lose basic skills over the summer. Volunteers from local churches assist the Rescue Mission’s staff in reading, writing, and learning about Jesus.
