    Affordable Christmas

    Affordable Christmas provides an opportunity for community renewal by building relationships and offering an affordable, dignified and enjoyable shopping experience for those who are in financial need. There is often joy in being able to choose and pay for a gift for someone we love. 

    Stocking the Affordable Christmas store will be a yearlong process. To ensure we have a broad inventory of items available in the store, we will focus on one gift category each month, offering suggestions of what to purchase. However, you are not bound by the schedule. For example, if you see a good deal on a board game during sports equipment month, please feel free to buy it and donate it! We appreciate your cooperation in donating new gifts not used.
     
    SCHEDULE FOR THE YEAR
    January to March - warm clothes, coats and boots
    April - books and games
    May - sports equipment
    June - toys
    July - arts and crafts
    August - gift cards
    September - Kirkwood apparel
    October - electronics
     
    Thank you for helping to make this a success! Donations can be brought to church anytime.

    What is 20:28?

    Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many. 
    Matthew 20:28

    This is one of our annual ministry highlights because we have the opportunity to serve our neighbors, the community of Kirkwood, and the greater St. Louis area. Below are just a few of the many opportunities we have had to share Christ’s love with others:

    • Makeover an apartment for a family coming out of an abused situation
    • Planting flowers in front of the Kirkwood Police Station
    • Painting several rooms in a foster home
    • Serving lunch to the homeless

    On Saturday morning, June 10, 2017, friends and family will gather for prayer and then disperse throughout the St. Louis area to SERVE our community. The weekend closes Sunday morning when we CELEBRATE all God has done through worship at 9:00 and 10:45 AM. Childcare for infants - 3 years. No classes for adults, students and children. 

    20:28 projects are funded by generous donations. If you would like to contribute financially with a tax deductible donation, click here or checks may be addressed to Greentree Community Church/memo - 20:28.

    All Among Us - Homeless/Single Mom Ministry

    The goal of All Among Us is to build relationships with the poor and reduce their social isolation by gathering, purchasing, and distributing food, clothing, and personal items to the chronically homeless, single moms, and children.  

    Serving Opportunities

    Homeless

    • Serve the homeless on Saturday mornings.  Trunks are packed with what is needed for that week, depending on weather, new folks on the street, and what has specifically been requested, and provided.
    • Community groups, student ministries, and families can collect needed items provide ‘snack bags’ to include crackers, water, granola, pens, and paper or backpacks with socks, canned food, clippers, hand sanitizer, lotion, and lip balm.  Other items such as towels, blankets, old camping equipment, pots and pans are needed.   Parents can collect items with their children from around their homes such as towels, blankets, old camping equipment, extra pots and pans, and personal items.  This is of no cost to the families.

    Single Moms

    • Supplying gifts for the Single Mom Blessing Boxes is a great activity for women’s groups and families
