What is Christmas House?

Christmas House is an intentional gift sponsorship program during the Christmas season between Trinity and local families from Bryant Montessori and Jason Lee Middle school.  Trinity is assisted by several other community partners & churches in this effort.

The heart of Christmas House is to develop relationships with families in the Bryant Neighborhood by supporting them with help at Christmas time, primarily in the form of gifts.  Families from Bryant Montessori and Jason Lee Middle School are referred by school counselors as needing extra help this season. 

The Trinity congregation is then given the opportunity to choose a family to sponsor. Everyone is encouraged to participate by sponsoring a family themselves, or partnering with your community to meet these needs.
