Alternative Giving Catalog

Welcome to Chapel Hill’s Alternative Christmas Catalog. We hope that in this season of giving, it will help you to find new ways to share your love and the love of God.  Often we find ourselves wondering what to get for that special person on our list who really does not seem to need, or even  want anything.  Combine that with a world full of needs, and you have the concept of the Alternative Christmas Catalog.  The Missions Action Team has selected a variety of ministry programs that help people in need.  Some are official missions of the United Methodist Church, and some are not.  They include local, national and international ministries. The various ministries are listed first on the index pages in the booklet.  A brief description of each is given on the following pages. If you choose to make a gift, select the program or programs that interest you and decide the amount you wish to donate.  Any amount will be gratefully received. The Faith in Action Team will make sure that donations are forwarded to the ministries selected. These are gifts that will reach out in love 365 days a year.  May the special gifts of the season -- peace, joy, hope and love -- be yours. Please make your donations by December 31st.  After that date, please send your gifts directly to the organization of your choice.
