Each year during the month of October, we gather donations at Calvary for the Slavic Gospel Association’s annual program, Immanuel’s Child. Through the program, children and their parents in Russia, Ukraine, and neighbouring countries are invited to a Christmas program at a local church, where they hear a clear gospel presentation and the children receive a gift, treats, an illustrated Bible, and a Star of Bethlehem ornament signed by the donor(s) in Canada.

The cost is $35 per star. Calvary will be accepting donations until 1 November 2020. You can drop off an envelope with your donation during a Sunday service or you can donate online using eTransfer. Make sure you specify in the “Message” section of the transfer that the funds are to be directed towards Immanuel’s Child.
