OGT’s Phoenix Branch teamed up with Epiphany Lutheran Church-Chandler, AZ’s Outreach Committee and presented a Christmas in July church service. At the July 9 and 10 services, retired Pastor James Hoefer lead a complete Christmas service with Christmas hymns, Bible readings, sermon and Christmas Gift Box dedication focused on the birth of Jesus. The focus was on the miracle of His birth, rather than all the other activities that fill our Decembers. The small and loving Epiphany congregation filled 75 Christmas boxes, provided by OGT. These boxes will be delivered to the Christian Family Care Agency/Arizona Adoption & Foster Care in Phoenix, AZ and distributed to foster children ages infant to age 4 this July. Thank you for sharing about the birth of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, to many children.
