In 1988 Gifts For All God's Children began at Faith Lutheran Church in Troy, Michigan as an advent ministry to serve needy children.  That year 187 children received Christmas gifts. Thirty years later in 2018 this outreach has expanded and now a growing number of people in churches, private and public schools, organizations and businesses sponsor children, make donations or volunteer. In December 2018, over 3,250 children received gifts picked out especially for them and since 1988 the number of children served has reached more than 68,857!  Along with the sponsors in churches, businesses and schools who purchased beautiful gifts, thousands of gifts were shopped for and wrapped at our “Christmas Workshop” in Shelby Township.   Large bags of gifts were distributed to families at Christmas parties and after church services, while others were delivered to homes in the city, some with food baskets.
