Festival of Gifts is a long-standing tradition that every member looks forwards to at Christ Church Cranbrook. But what is Festival of Gifts? This beautiful service is a reenactment of Jesus’s birth story. This includes everything from the shepherd in the fields tending to their flocks to the three Wisemen. There are even live animals involved!  The congregation is invited to donate toys during the nativity scene. After the services, we sort through all the gifts in a room and invite our partners to come and “shop.” Partners include:  SamaritasOakland Family ServicesChildren’s VillageDetroit Rescue MissionMicah 6 CommunityBaldwin Center, Bound Together, and Lighthouse of Oakland County. Partners take what they need for their organization and distribute the toys to kids within their communities. The children are the ones who really benefit from Festival of Gifts. It is an amazing experience to see!
