A great idea to help children focus on other people at Christmas is to have them make their own Christmas cards. Here’s some ideas of who they could send them to.
Missionaries: Missionaries have a hard time at Christmas. They’re away from their families, many times in places that don’t celebrate Christmas.
Shut Ins and Nursing Home Residents: Some of our senior members feel alone at Christmas especially if they have no family nearby.
Widows and Widowers: Those who have lost their spouses have a hard time during the holidays.
Parents: Parents are usually the ones who give to their children at Christmas. Sometimes it helps to give a little something back.
Pastor: Pastors love to be appreciated too. Getting Christmas Cards from all the children would make their day.
