Advent 2021 at Aldersgate

Aldersgate invites everyone of all ages to observe Advent with us. We invite you to join us for the following events and studies:

Formation & Community Outreach

Share your Christmas 2021: We share the joys of the Christmas with our neighbors through Share Your Christmas. This year, we are aiming to help 70 families in Durham County to have a brighter Christmas. You can donate your contribution by following the link: Share Your Christmas 2021 Drive

Advent Giving 2021: We observe the season of Advent by giving. This year we are giving needed warm clothing for the homeless and the needy. There will be a box outside of the front office for all donations. The list of donations can be found here: Advent Giving 2021

2021 Annual Reindeer Store: We will also have an opportunity to give donations to the Central Regional Hospital's Christmas program called Reindeer Store. The Central Regional Hospital is a state-operated acute in-patient psychiatric facility serving the children of all of NC.
