It's that time of year again and we need you!

Just by giving two hours of your time, smiling, wishing people a Merry Christmas, maybe singing some Christmas carols and spreading holiday love and cheer, you are making sure a child doesn't go without a present at Christmas or a family doesn't go without heat or food on the table.


Just two hours can do that. You can do that!


Starting on Friday, September 7, 2018, you can go to and sign up to ring bells this Christmas season.

  • Sign up as an individual or as a group.
  • Pick the location where you want to ring.
  • You can do more than one shift.
  • Dress up, sing carols, have fun with your time there!

If you have any questions, or have trouble signing up, call Tamyra Harrison at 515-282-3599 or email

We break the kids up in to 3 groups and each group gets 15 min at a station to do a craft, snack, or game that applies to the badge. At the end, there is 15 mins where the groups come together as one and we do a devotional and pray with the kids before it is time to go home.
