We have had the privilege for the last fifteen years of serving our community by helping families in need of toys for their kids at Christmastime.  It is a great opportunity for all of our church volunteers to show the love of Christ to many families.  It is also an opportunity to share with them the greatest gift of all–Jesus Christ.  John 3:16 tells us, “For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”  Jesus left His home in Heaven some two thousand years ago and became a man by being born of a virgin.  He lived a perfect, sinless life for 33 years and went to the cross of Calvary to bleed and die for the sins of us all.  He did it so that we might be saved from our sins.  If we will believe on Him and trust Him to save us, we can receive the gift of everlasting life.  What a gift!  To us it is free, but to God, it was the most expensive gift to be given–His only begotten Son!
