Christmas Parties 2018

'Tis the season for SMGW's annual Participant Christmas Parties!

Part of our ministry is to provide opportunities for participants to celebrate the season and our community together. These family-friendly events each have their own unique activities, yet all share in crafts, music and wonderful food. They also share in giving. Participants with children aged up to 12 are able to shop (for free) from among new donated toys, while participants received donated gift cards for children 13-17. Participants without children receive gifts cards.

Partners and donors provide the hospitality. This includes: St. Francis Episcopal Church, Great Falls; St. Alban's Episcopal Church, Annandale; St. Timothy's Episcopal Church, DC; St. Andrew's Episcopal School; Christ Lutheran Church, DC; St. Philip's Episcopal Church, DC, and many more.

Our Southeast party was held December 2 at St. Philip's Episcopal Church near our Anacostia office. Thank you Raw Element for joining us and your fantastic dancing! Click here to read more and see photos from our Southeast party.

Our Northwest party was December 8 at Christ Lutheran Church. Click here to read more and see photos from our Northeast party.

Our last party was a Christmas open house at our Northern Virginia in Arlington office on December 12. Jam-packed with food, fun and good friends...this was a beautiful celebration of the community. Click here to read more and see photos from our NOVA party.
