Christmas Stockings for the Troops

Christmas Stockings for the Troops
We hope that you will help us send some Christmas cheer to those serving in the military overseas.

Filling Christmas stockings for the troops has become a tradition at AUMC. This year the tradition continues, but with some changes due to the pandemic.

This year we will not be providing stockings for you to fill with goodies. But we have quite a few ways that you can continue to support this much appreciate ministry.

  • Look through your Christmas supplies for blank Christmas cards. Write a message and drop them off at the church. Tuesdays 9:30 to 11:00 am (knock on the back door of the church office and Sherry will take them.) or Thursdays from 11 am until 2 pm with Lee in the East Building.
  • Shop for goodies by clicking here on Amazon and have them shipped directly to Judy Ishihara. You can also do your own shopping and drop them off at the times listed in the bullet point above.
  • Make a donation to AUMC by clicking here and choosing “Troop Mailings”. You can also mail a check to AUMC with “The Troops” in the memo line. (It costs about $25 to fill one stocking and about $20 to mail one box.)
  • Continue lifting prayers for those serving overseas and those associated with our congregation.

We will be purchasing stockings and candy canes to be included. Thank you for helping continue this tradition of spreading Christmas cheer.

Merry Christmas!
