The Garber Virtual Giving Tree is back--with over 200 tags for local children in need at JT Barber Elementary School, Bangert Elementary School and NEW THIS YEAR, New Bern High School! 


Your generosity through these gifts will bring needed items & joy to those who receive them!


Remember to return your unwrapped gifts to the designated red carts no later than December 10 at noon.  

Please put your name on the gift and gift label on your gift when you return it. 

By taking a tag from our Virtual Giving Tree, you are sharing God’s love to children in need in our local schools.

Alternative Giving Cards

A long standing Advent/Christmas tradition at Garber Church is Alternative Giving Cards. 

These cards, when purchased by you and given to a friend or loved one, help support two of our local mission partners: Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Backpack Blessings. Once you order your cards, they will be delivered to your door or mailed to you! Then, you can address them and send them to your loved ones, teachers, neighbors, or others. 

These cards both honor the person to whom you send them, as well as financially help the two named missions. It’s a win-win!


If you need assistance making your purchases, a Mission Committee Members will be available in the Atrium on Sundays, December 3 and 10.
