Factory Church will be delivering free Christmas trees and Christmas tree starter kits to families in need across the Concord and Charlotte area on Thursday, November 21st, 2019 from 3pm – 8pm.
Factory Church is partnering with Beds for Kids to provide 100 Christmas trees and Christmas tree starter kits to families across Cabarrus and Mecklenburg County this holiday season. Many of these families have just moved out of a shelter and into a home, but often reside in these homes without basic furniture or beds to sleep in. “We have a saying at Factory that goes like this: We over me – always! There’s something special when a movement swells around a mission, and when service becomes the vision rather than looking for what we can get from someone,” said Pastor Andy Williamson.
Beds for Kids provides these families with beds and other essential furniture, and Factory Church is partnering with them to provide Christmas trees and Christmas tree starter kits, filled with items for each family to decorate. Williamson said taking on this partnership was a no brainer. “We have a chance to make a great impact in the lives of many families this holiday season. We want to be the catalyst that jump starts hope for them. We know that we will gain a bigger blessing than the families that we are serving. We like to think that actions speak more to who we are than anything else.”
Church members have donated 100 Christmas tree starter kits and raised the money to purchase 100 live trees. On Thursday, November 21st these church members will be meeting at the Factory Church location, loading Christmas trees on the tops of their cars, gathering starter kits, and delivering to families in need.
