2020 Christmas Event Emmanuel God with Us Event



We were delighted to give out 1,087 free gift bags on December 23 to families in our community. It was an honour and pleasure to be able to share the love and joy of Jesus at Christmas with our community neighbours, regardless of their background or situation. While Christmas looked different in 2020, it was heartwarming to see so many happy faces during the event. Afterwards, we received many thank you and appreciation calls from the recipients – this encourages us to continue to serve the community.

We wish to thank our volunteers, supporters and staff for their dedication and generosity to make this event a success. We could not have done this without them!

Thanks for the endorsement from our Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti!

Illuminate Life with Christmas Love


Christmas is coming! This year, our Christmas wish is to connect with our neighbours and pass on the love and hope of Christmas especially during this unprecedented pandemic time.


We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate Christmas together with our neighbours, and we plan to give away gift bags to 1,000 families in Markham and Scarborough areas. This is a free community event where participants will journey through twinkling Christmas light displays and pick up a gift bag. Gift bags will be distributed to families regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion or financial situation.


Nevertheless, we hope the recipients will share with others and continue to pass on the love of the Christmas season. It’s just as the saying goes, “It’s more blessed to give than to receive”. The gifts are worth more when we pass them on!
