White Gift Sunday is one of many ways that we live out our vision as a congregation that connects, grows, and serves for the good of the city. The gifts given directly support the residents of the Rescue Mission, one of our Strategic Mission Partners.

Help us build upon this valued tradition by bringing gifts wrapped in white to our combined Worship Celebration on December 8. Together we can spread Christmas joy and a spirit of thanksgiving throughout Topeka. 

To best serve their residents and the community, the Topeka Rescue Mission has curated a list of gifts that would be most impactful for us to collect. Take a look at the list and consider what you might be able to give on December 8!
