Old South's Children & Family Ministries is collecting new and gently used children's clothing between now and December 17th for Cradles to Crayons. We will then gather on Saturday 12/17 from 9am - noon to sort and compile donations into packs for children in transitional situations like foster care, new immigrants, and domestic emergencies. We encourage you to focus on new or gently used children's clothing and winter coats -- as these are what are most needed at this time of year. While we do accept underwear, socks, and pajamas, these items must be NEW, in packaging/with tags. Donations can be brought to the Chapel donation box on Sundays, or left for Kate Nintcheu at reception during the week.
To RSVP for Dec 17th, please click here.

While we’re bombarded with words lauding the wonders of the season, many people find the holidays anything but joyful. Blue Christmas provides an opportunity to step away & let go into music and readings that acknowledge your feelings without trying to talk you out of them. Even if you love the holidays, you may find comfort in this special service.
Saturday, December 24th at 5pm, 8pm and 11pm
We offer three unique candlelit services on Christmas Eve, the first two of which will also be viewable via live stream. We hope you can join us!
Children are invited to participate in an impromptu Christmas pageant, with simple costumes provided. We sing carols to tell the Christmas story together. Childcare provided.
An elegant telling of the Christmas story in carols and readings with music for choir and organ, culminating in the singing of “Silent Night” in our candle-lit sanctuary. Childcare provided.
A warmly traditional service with festive carol singing, traditional lessons, and communion in our garland-bedecked chapel. We greet the birth of Christ by singing "Silent Night" outdoors by candlelight just after midnight.
Connect with a child in foster care to help make their holiday bright. Old South is partnering with the Department of Children and Families to provide gifts for 75 or more children in foster care. We need your help! All OSC members who choose to participate will be matched with a specific child and given a wish list with web links to the child's requested gifts. You will shop online and ship the items directly to our DCF partner. The estimated cost is $50+ per child. Just email David Story and the team at email@example.com and let us know how many children you will sponsor and if you are able to do a more expensive gift like a bicycle. Thank you in advance for your generosity. Old South's Santas are the BEST!
