2020 Virtual Giving Tree

This year our Giving Tree is VIRTUAL!  The concept is still the same...you select a tag, purchase a gift and return it to Garber.  These gifts will go to students in need at Bangert, Ben D. Quinn and JT Barber Elementary Schools.  By participating in our Virtual Giving Tree you are providing hope and happiness to many children in the New Bern area. 

Selecting a tag is easy...

1) Click on the Christmas Tree to your right. 

2) This will send you to the Virtual Giving Tree site where you will find over 100 “tags” to select from.

 

3) Select your “tag” and click on the green SIGN UP button; then follow the instructions on the website.

 

4) You will receive a confirmation email once you have completed your sign up.

 

5) Please include YOUR NAME  on your gift when you return your gift to the cart outside of the Ministry Center. 

 

**Please return gifts by December 13!  

Alternative Gift Giving Cards

A long standing Advent/Christmas tradition at Garber Church is the Alternative Giving Cards.  

These cards, when purchased by you and given to a friend or loved one, help support two of our favorite missions — 

Religious Community Services (RCS) and Backpack Blessings.  

These cards will be available to order online thru our website from November 29—December 13. 

The cards will be delivered to your door or mailed to you!  Then you can address them and send them to your friends, loved ones, teachers, neighbors, or others.  These cards both honor the person to whom you send them as well as financially help the two named missions!  It’s a win-win!

 

Here’s how you order:

 

1) Click here and access the Alternative Gift Giving Cards Portal


2) Choose the mission and the amount from the listed options.

Connection Cola

If you have been a guest to Garber in person worship services or online and want to take a next step, please join us at the home of

Sara and Mac King, 902 Leeward Drive,

for a socially distanced event

Sunday, December 6 at 4 p.m. 

There will be an opportunity to meet the pastors in person and the staff via video.  

We will give an overview of Garber, 

including our mission and values,

Unable to join us in person? Come join us online! 

Click here for our LIVE streaming portal.


If you missed a Worship Service, or would like to share this week's Worship time with a friend, 

the services are recorded and stored online just go to the streaming page to see the current LIVE service or view previous services.  This is a great resource for those that are ill or unable to join us, and for folks who are curious about Garber to learn more about our gatherings.  Please remember: this is no substitute for actually being present with the body of Christ in Worship,  Worship isn't something we can consume on a computer screen, but something we offer up

together as a gathered people.

We pray this resource will bless you and your family.
