Hope for Christmas

Hope for Christmas

“One day, the staff of 88.7 The Cross sat in a meeting talking about how the ministry can give back to the community and inspire others to do the same. As time passed, God laid a specific vision on our hearts along with the desire to create something new and continue doing it yearly. From this brainstorming session, an idea was born called 88.7 The Cross Hope for Christmas. The station will prayerfully choose people or other ministries to bless during the month of December while joining hands with you to make it happen and be a community united with the purpose of stirring one another to hope. 

Today, I’m asking you to join staff and board members as 88.7 The Cross’ Hope for Christmas is launched this year to provide 300 children living in poverty a gift to open this Christmas. Some children receiving gifts are homeless and unable to stand up for themselves. Teachers advocate for them during the school day, but students still leave the campus uncertain about their lives.

“Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves; ensure justice for those being crushed. Yes, speak up for the poor and helpless, and see that they get justice.”

Proverbs 31:8-9

Christmas is a time to reflect on the hope found in the birth of Jesus. He was born in a stable behind an inn to a couple who didn’t have much, but believed He was the Son of God. These children walking the halls of a local school don’t have much, but God desires to give them a hopeful Christmas – and you are needed.

As God leads 88.7 The Cross to do this, I’m praying He would stir your heart to help make it possible. Your one-time gift of $50 by December 16th puts a smile on a child’s face and reminds them of hope in Jesus. When you choose to give today, you are impacting the life of a child in need and spreading hope in your community.

Thank you for keeping 88.7 The Cross on the air through the years. We wouldn’t be here without you!
