Amazing Grace Interfaith Ministry believes children are our future. We focus on helping needy children as much as possible.

Advent Brunch: The Amazing Kids Connection Christ Toy Drive

Sunday, November 26, 2017 12:30PM - 3PM (immediately following service)

On Sunday, November 26th, immediately following our Sunday Service at 12:30AM, we will celebrate Advent with our annual Advent Brunch in the Church Hall.

Francine Hillpot 718 987-0492 is ordering the food for the brunch. Please call her so she can have an accurate head count for the caterer.

There will be holiday arts & crafts for adults and children. Expect joy and creativity to fill the room.!

This is the time of year when our hearts open up to giving and sharing. Bring as many unwrapped Barbie dolls, cars/trucks and hand held games for older children as you can. These items will be given to the needy children of the Amazing Kids Connection on Saturday, December 9th, 2017, at Calvary Presbyterian Church, 909 Castleton Avenue (corner of Castleton & Bement).

We are all looking forward to another wonderful Advent Brunch. Please come and bring a friend or two. Join the fun and fellowship.
