This Christmas season, we invite you to be a part of something special: Grassroots Church’s first ever “Santa’s Workshop.”
Santa’s Workshop is the way our church will give gifts to help make Christmas special for several local families in need. This event has the potential to be a real life-changing event for these families and for each of us as we personalize the gift-giving experience.
Here’s how Santa’s Workshop works:
Select Families in Need
We’re working with Pearland ISD and other organizations to pre-select and invite up to 10 families to be blessed through Santa’s Workshop.
Donate and Collect Gifts
We’ll work together to donate more than enough gifts for these kids. In addition to members of Grassroots donating gifts, we’ll also place gift drop-boxes at businesses in and around the city.
Set up the Workshop
We’ll transform Dancescape Studio into Santa’s Workshop on Saturday, December 9. Our normal gathering room for worship will be transformed into a store, a gift-wrapping station, and a cafe. Our Kids Ministry room will be transformed into a Pictures-with-Santa photo op, a crafting station (for kids to make a Christmas gift for their parents), and a story-time station (for kids to hear the story of Jesus’ birth).
Families will arrive (by appointment) between 4:00 and 7:00 pm. Kids will be escorted to the kids’ room for photos, crafts, and story time. Parents will be escorted by a personal shopper through the “store” to select (free) gifts for their own children. They’ll receive complimentary gift wrapping and enjoy holiday refreshments and delicious treats while they wait.
Be There Because God is Here
Santa’s Workshop takes gift-giving to the next level and will do what other charitable gift-giving cannot do. It allows us to meet each family, to pray for (and even pray with) each family, to share the Christmas story, to serve with eager hospitality, to provide Christmas memories, and most importantly, to be there for each family as a reminder of the Christmas story that God is HERE — Emmanuel — God is With Us.
