AGAPE Christmas Boxes

Give as Christ Gave to You – Project AGAPE
As Christ gave himself for us, we give ourselves for others. One way we do this is by remembering children who are less fortunate than us.

Thanks to NC Conference churches, over 3,000 Agape boxes were sent as Christmas presents for children in Armenia in 2017. Many went to immigrant children from war ravaged Syria.

YOU can be part of the Miracle!

Join the United Methodist Women in preparing shoe boxes for Project AGAPE. This is a joint mission project with our North Carolina Conference and the Western NC Conference. Filled shoe boxes are distributed to the children of Armenia. The United Methodist Church is the only religious affiliation allowed to distribute items in Armenia.
Boxes and packing lists are available in the Parlor, in front of the UMW bulletin board, or download a copy by clicking here.
Please return the filled boxes to the Parlor by May 1, 2018.

Additionally, churches donated $1,000 to the AGAPE Cattle Project to buy a cow for an immigrant family, supplying the family with milk and enabling the family to become self-sufficient. Other cash donations help pay salaries for AGAPE staff in Armenia, office and transportation expenses for Christian relief response, and salary support for a priest and doctor in Berdzor … one of the most impoverished places on earth. A donation of $100, or whatever you can afford, will make a big difference. Thank you for your support!
