S.H.I.N.E. - Christmas H.O.P.E. USA Coloring Contest

Updated on October 19, 2015

Share His Incredible News Everywhere

Shine USA Christmas H.O.P.E.

Coloring Contest

We celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ as a reminder of God's love sent to Earth through the Savior.

As believers, we are to share this message of H.O.P.E. (Heaven's Own Promised Emmanuel) to everyone. That is why this year's USA theme is S.H.I.N.E. (Shine His Incredible News Everywhere), based on the scripture Matthew 5:16.

"Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven." Matthew 5:16 ESV

Do your kids like to color? Can they express what Christmas really means? We thought so and that's why we held a Christmas H.O.P.E. Coloring Contest.

CURRENTLY Closed.

All Proceeds go toward the Christmas H.O.P.E. Program.

Christmas Hope is for Everyone!
