Christpoint Children Unwrap Almost 600 Christmas Gifts
Galena’s Christpoint Church blesses children with the spirit of giving at their “Ultimate Christmas Experience.”
Around 250 children learn the story of Christmas, participate in a group service, and await their gifts from Santa.
Almost 600 gifts were donated for the event by Christpoint church members for the ceremony.
Kids counted down from ten to each open two gifts in unison.
Children’s Pastor Orlando Garcia says, “This time of the season a lot of the parents are looking for gifts, they need some help, you know. Families need some help. It’s great need. And we just thought as a church we outta come together and fulfill that need.”
This is the fourth year Christpoint has held its “Ultimate Christmas Experience.”
Its goal is to celebrate the season of giving and teach children about the true meaning of Christmas.
