Stockings for Centrals' Kids | Heaventrain


The mission of Heaventrain is to build meaningful and lasting relationships with children and their families in Cleveland’s central neighborhood. We follow this principle every time we go into the neighborhoods. There are times that are a little more special, however, and Christmas in one of them. Christmas Stockings are a personal- ized way of letting the kids know someone loves them. Receiving love plus hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ prepares children’s hearts to potentially accepting the greatest gift of all — salvation.


GIFT OF LOVE--Your Christmas stocking will show a child someone cares for them


GIFT OF ENCOURAGEMENT--Your card will tell them God loves them


GIFT OF THE GOOD NEWS--Your gift will help our team share the greatest story ever told


You can help in one or more of the following ways:
