N&N: Garber United Methodist Church Sings Carols for Monarch’s Kimberly Road Home

3-Garber-Methodist-CarolersLeanna Tyson’s sister, Laura, lives at Monarch’s Kimberly Road home in New Bern. This holiday season, Tyson spent many days looking for a way she could bring Christmas cheer to her sister and those who live at the home.

She even recruited friends in her Sunday school class at Garber United Methodist to help her brainstorm. The class facilitator, Holly Willis, pitched the idea to have a Christmas party and go caroling at Kimberly Road and the group thought it was a great idea.

Those at Garber United Methodist quickly got to work collecting gifts; for each of the residents. One woman even sewed customized Christmas pillowcases for each resident, and on Dec. 1 they had a Christmas party for everyone. The group returned to the home on Dec. 16 to deliver the gifts and sing carols.

 

“Everyone in my Sunday school class was so happy to get to know the young adults at Kimberly Road,” said Tyson. “They kept saying they got so much out of it and they want to make it a yearly tradition.”
