Help us put together 100 Delta Christmas Baskets

by Element Christian Church

Delta Basket Drive

Last year we did the holiday Christmas store for the students of Delta High School. With Covid that is something we cannot do this year...BUT…we have an alternative! We are working to provide gift baskets filled with the most popular items from the store last year. The students loved the basics like blankets, towels, and toiletries. We are asking Element to jump in and help us provide 100 gift baskets!  You can put a gift basket together (or more than one…I know one family who made 20!) and drop it off at Element by Sunday, December 6th. 

Please provide a bin of some kind and put these items inside:  a blanket, a towel, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, deodorant, a toothbrush, and toothpaste.  Please also include an encouraging Christmas note.  You are also welcome to donate money for us to put more baskets together. Please let us know if you are able to help so we can get a count.  Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

by Element Christian Church

This week Michael sits down with Aaron and Brandon McCool to discuss Acts week 37. Paul’s continuing journey now leads to a shipwreck…for the Glory of God.

This comes to complete fulfillment with Jesus: the incarnate God – the perfect revelation. Questions Discussed: 

- Brandon, What's it like bring married to an Element staffer?
- What things in your life do you allow to hold power over you, when in reality they don’t (of what are you still superstitious)?
