We wish you a Christmas filled with happiness, joy, and peace! Merry Christmas, from all of us at Haywood Christian Ministry.
Today is your last day to shop at the Haywood Ministry Thrift Store before the Christmas Holiday! We're open from 9am-4pm. Don't miss out!
"And here we are today, on the longest night of the year, looking forward to Christmas, and many of us may not only be experiencing the physical darkness of the start of winter but the emotional, spiritual, or material darknesses of loss, pain, and suffering.

Christmas stands as a hope that the dawn that is about to appear will break through the darkness and reshape our horizons."
We will be closed next week for the Christmas Holiday. If you need food, please be sure to come by this week for enough food to last you through the Holiday Season!
Free clothes day!!!
Come browse our collection of free clothes, available in the parking lot behind the thrift store! We'll be there from 9am-3pm.
Don't go cold this winter! If you can't afford to heat your house and you have someone in your house 65 and over or 5 and under, you may qualify for heating assistance. Contact us today to learn more!
"The coming of Jesus isn't just about personal, eternal salvation, but it's about rectifying the injustices of our world today. That starts with liberating the downtrodden; it begins with reminding the disenfranchised that they have worth."
As we begin this week, let's reflect on the words of Jean Vanier, founder of L'Arche.

"To love someone is not first of all to do things for them, but to reveal to them their beauty and value, to say to them through our attitude: 'You are beautiful. You are important. I trust you. You can trust yourself.'"
