For December, we will be holding our Annual WOCC Christmas Gathering. WOCC has voted to hold a virtual party on Sunday, December 5th, with more details to follow.


Springfield Hospital Donations

We will once again be collecting Christmas gifts for our friends at Springfield Hospital. Though we haven’t been able to make our usual visits due to the pandemic, we will be gathering gifts for them to bring a little Christmas joy. If you would like to contribute, we have placed a large container in the Tower Room to accept your unwrapped donations. We will need them by December 15th, in order to meet their deadline. If you want to donate gifts but can’t get them to church, please contact Cathy Gold or email info@christchurchcolumbia.org, and we will find a way. Here is the current wish list from Springfield, in case you would like suggestions.

Baltimore Seafarer Ministry

Our Next delivery date by WOCC to the Seafarers Center is Tuesday December 7th. Find drop off bin marked “Seafarers” in the Tower Room of New Brick. Each year, the WOCC helps prepare those Seafarers that come to the Baltimore Harbor with ‘Warmth and The Holidays’. These are people who are often away at sea for very long periods of time. Please help by contributing any of these needed items!

  • Calendars

  • Current magazines (especially National Geographic & Smithsonian)

  • Toiletries for their “Christmas shoe boxes” that are handed out to each Seafarer, such as: toothbrushes, small and medium-size toothpastes, travel-size shaving cream, disposable razors, etc.

  • Warm socks, warm hats, and gloves.
