Giveaway FAQs!

WHAT IS IT?

In an effort to foster a spirit of giving & joy within our community, the Live Nativity has partnered with the business community in the Greater Abingtons Area, to help them in their goal of 'giving back' to the community they are privileged to serve, during this Christmas Season.

Participating Businesses donate a gift item (or gift certificate) to be given away by a drawing!

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE GIVEAWAY?

live-nativity-gift-givingSimply by showing up to the Live Nativity!  There will be a post-performance celebration gathering in the fellowship hall & lobby of the church (out of the cold!) - with complimentary refreshments, live entertainment, crackling fireplace, and beautiful decorations.  Once inside, there will be a registration table.

There is NO cost to register!

Drawings for the gifts will be conducted AFTER the final performance of the Live Nativity (Sunday evening).  Recipients will be notified by either phone or email.  Your gift may be picked up at either the church -OR- the business that donated it (whichever is appropriate).

Winners of the drawing will also be published on this webpage (next to the corresponding gift) by the close of that following Wednesday.  Make sure to check back!

Keep scrolling down to view LAST YEAR'S gifts and winners!  THEN... come to the Live Nativity to register to win!!!

I'M A BUSINESS OWNER. HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

It's EZ!  Simply email or call the Giveaway Coordinator Pastor Michael Warner from Clarks Green Assembly at 570-586-8286, and he'll assist you with:

  • Deciding on an appropriate gift to donate (a gift basket, or $50 gift certificate to your business, for example).
  • Placing your name & location on THIS website, as either an event sponsor (if you're donating items/funds directly to the Nativity production) -OR- a gift donor to the Giveaway.
  • A link to your website or facebook-logo Facebook page - so that visitors to this page may learn about your services!

Donation Opportunities!

Each year, it takes MANY volunteers to successfully stage the Live Nativity production - a real community of people who cherish the message of Christmas, and are willing to sacrifice of the time & talents to make it happen for the benefit of us all.

It also costs thousands of dollars to produce each year... especially with our ever-increasing annual attendance!

As such, there are MANY ways for you to come along side of us this Christmas Season!  We humbly ask you - the cherished members of our residential & business communities - to consider prayerfully how you can partner with us - whether volunteering your time, baking or decorating talents, or (of course) your financial support.

Time, items, or non-cash contributions

Many have been asking how they can become involved... It's EZ!  Simply email or call the Nativity & Giveaway Coordinator Pastor Michael Warner from Servant Church at 570-586-8286.  We'll plug you in!  We're also excited to accept Giveaway gifts from community businesses.
