Hannah's Hope Annual Christmas Gift Drive

When? Sunday November 13 to December 11

Why? To show the Love of Christ and to spread joy to 24 homeless children living in motels in south Baltimore and in Aberdeen.

How? Take a gift tag from our tree in the church lobby and return your wrapped gift with its tag attached by December 11. Questions? Contact Paula at

COZV Christmas Drive

It’s that time of year where we struggle with the idea of buying family and friends that perfect gift, especially when we have so much. Wouldn’t it be beautiful to give a gift in someone’s name to Children of Zion Village (orphanage in Namibia run by Mt. Zion Church) for kids who are so desperately in need! Please see Christmas Catalog on Welcome Desk or online at Once your order is received we will mail you a Christmas Card for each gift you have given, ready to personalize and deliver. Questions? Contact Courtney at
