This Christmas Season
Members of Oakley United Methodist Church are making a brighter Christmas for local children through Asheville Buncombe County Community Mission’s (ABCCM) Christmas Angel Program. For over forty years ABCCM has reached out to those in need to provide help for children at Christmas. Families in crisis through our Crisis Ministries:   Families living at the Steadfast House, Families served through the Supportive Services for Veteran Families. We also reach out to assist other areas where children may “fall through the cracks” such as local schools and military resource centers. We do not want any child to miss the joy of Christmas morning. Many agencies have had funding cuts and are unable to help as much this year. This allows our members an even bigger opportunity to help ABCCM to reach children that may otherwise be missed. It is a difficult situation when families find themselves in crisis this time of the year. For more information, you may contact ABCCM at 828.259.5300.
Special Services:  Cantata Service on December 16th and Christmas Eve Candlelight Service on December 24th at 6:30 pm
2nd Annual Tacky Christmas Party
December 16th directly after the 11 am service. Please come and enjoy food, fun and fellowship!!!
For more information, please call 828. 274.7656.
We, here, at Oakley United Methodist Church hope you will join us for services in December
and throughout the year. We also wish you and yours a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!
