Plantation Park Christmas Toy Drive

November 21, 2022 • All Day |Open Road Fellowship Church


Imagine if you were a parent unable to provide a Christmas gift for your child this year. That is a legitimate thing that happens with our kindergarten kids over at Plantation Park. That is not a memory any parent or child should have from Christmas. That is where we step in... most know that we have adopted the entire kindergarten class at the school. We are going to step in and make sure Christmas happens this year for these kids.

We are asking everyone to bring in an unwrapped toy suitable for a kindergartener every Sunday starting November 27th. You can also drop them off at the coffee shop, On The Road Coffee Co., during the week. The toy can be for a boy, a girl, or either and we are looking at handing out toys to about 90 kids. Be a part of making this holiday season bright for a child!

Once we have the dates from Plantation Park, we will schedule a wrapping party to get them all wrapped and labeled. They will send us the date of their Christmas party, and we will head over and deliver the toys. If you have not had the joy of helping with delivering the toys to the kids, you have missed out.

Open Road Students - Messy Christmas

December 8, 2022 • 6:00pm |Open Road Fellowship Church

“Joy to the world” is a catchy lyric, but can seem totally impossible when life feels messy. When we think “Christmas” we think “joyful celebration,” but what happens when the holiday season doesn’t match what’s actually happening around us? Know this: When life is hard, joy is still possible. When life is messy, joy is available. Why? Because when humanity was hurting, Jesus brought joy. In this 3-week Christmas series, Messy Christmas, we’re going to find a way to say “joy to the world anyway.”

Sometimes, Christmas brings the messes to the surface—stuff that’s already been going on.
We try to fix and control things as quickly as possible so that everything stays in order. We try to manage the mess.

  • We manage our image.
  • We manage expectations.
  • We manage relationships.
  • We manage behavior.

This list could go on and on. We all have our ways of managing the messes, especially during the holidays. The good news is that what we’re going to talk about today is not only helpful in the areas where we try to manage the messes, it’s helpful in all other areas of life too.
