BLESS Weekend How to Guide

BLESS Weekend How To Guide

Let’s be a BLESSing this Christmas

On the weekend of December 8th, 9th, and 10th we want to see everyone at Providence be a blessing.

Check out this How To Guide with examples, ideas, and even some recipes you could use.

Click and explore below for some inspiration. 

TAKE & BAKE

Bake your favorite Christmas cookies, treats, or bread, include a Christmas card and a Christmas Eve In Raleigh Invite Card, and give to someone in your life!

Invite Cards are available at the Welcome Desk on Sundays or you can pick some up through out the week at the South Entrance Reception Desk

Here are some recipes we love:

TEACHER CHRISTMAS GIFTS (FOR KIDS & STUDENTS)

Create a Christmas gift bag filled with a mug, coffee or tea, gum, candles, school supplies, gift cards, flowers, etc., and make sure to include a handwritten Christmas card to tell them how much you appreciate them. Slipping in a Christmas Eve in Raleigh invite card is a great idea as well.

BLESS RESTAURANT WORKERS & OTHERS

Purchase a $10 gift card to leave with your check, or leave a generous tip on your bill. Sliding in a Christmas card and an invite to Christmas Eve in Raleigh services on the bill tray is a great idea too.

Ask your server if you can pray for them. You never know how the Lord can open up a conversation. Small gestures make a big impact!

EVERYONE LOVES FLOWERS

Purchase a Poinsettia or any bouquet of flowers, attach a Christmas card and a Christmas Eve in Raleigh invite card, and give to someone you’d like to bless.

CELEBRATE TOGETHER

Host a Christmas Party! Partner with friends and neighbors to help share the responsibilities of hosting, feeding, decorating, and cleaning.

SERVE IN ELDER HOMES

Be a blessing in elderly communities around you or one that specifically partner with Providence.

Here are some contacts for these communities. Reach out to see how you can serve that weekend. 

  • Capital Oaks
    • 6498 Ray Rd, Raleigh, NC 27613
  • Treeo
    • 2722 Spring Forest Rd, Raleigh, NC 27616
  • Cypress

WRAP IT UP

Host a Christmas gift-wrapping party to help your community get their Christmas wrapping done faster. Not everyone is the best at wrapping, some just like a good bag, invite them to join in on the fun too!

Simply provide some snacks and supplies so you can create space for conversations about Christmas. A great next step post-party would be to invite party attendees to Christmas Eve in Raleigh services on December 24th.
