Christmas Cheer


First Church participates in The Shepherd Center’s Christmas Cheer program, designed to give presents to children in Cenla who would otherwise have little or nothing to open on Christmas day. Christmas Cheer also provides food for each family to enjoy Christmas dinner. 

For more than 25 years, First Church has sponsored over 3,000 children through Christmas Cheer. This is a wonderful way to bring the celebration of Christmas to a child in need. 

How can you help?

  • Take a tag or 2 off the tree
  • Purchase a gift
  • Wrap the gift
  • Place the gift under the tree by the deadline
  • Help sort and distribute food and gifts to families.  Be on the lookout for dates the first week in December.

Give to Christmas Cheer
