Thanksgiving & Christmas at CityLink


Web Subpage 619x273

We are blessed so that we may, in turn, be a blessing to others.


The holidays provide a unique opportunity for us to connect deeply with our community.
This holiday season, we are inviting you to come and share your heart at CityLink.


Our CityLink Outreach Ministry provides many opportunities for you to be the hands and
feet of Jesus. A wonderful way to celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday is by blessing others who might not otherwise be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal. We are now collecting food items that will be used to create meals for us to give to these families.

If you'd like to help, please bring your food items to the designated pick-up areas. Donation boxes will be located in the Fontana Campus Concourse, Main Family Lobby (across from the Worship Center), and Administration Offices on Miller Ave. There will also be donation boxes at our Upland and Rosena Campuses.

Christmas Store and Toy Drive

CityLink will host a Christmas Store where pre-registered parents can select toys for their children, free of charge. Our goal is to collect 4,000 toys to bless families this Christmas. The Christmas store will start Monday, December 17th and remain open until Wednesday, December 19th. Come join us and connect on a personal level with parents as they shop for toys. Reveal Jesus’ heart as you wrap gifts, serve hot coffee or cocoa, answer questions, and help make the shopping experience a memorable one.

How you can serve:

If you wish to donate toys, dronation boxes will be located at all campuses and the Administration Office from 11/18 & 19 through 12/16/2018.

There are a variety of serving opportunities available at our Toy Store. We need decorators, stockers, appointment schedulers, store managers, hosts/hostesses, greeters, gift wrappers (students welcome) and hospitality volunteers (to serve coffee/hot chocolate). 

Magic of Lights:

There are also serving opportunities available at the Magic of Lights. Magic of Lights is a national event tour that makes its way across the country by visiting different speedways. This year, Magic of Lights will return to the Inland Empire by visiting the Fontana Autoclub Speedway.

In 2017, Water of life was selected by the Magic of Lights as the benefitting nonprofit organization for the event. Our church frequently looks for opportunities to reach new people in our community by partnering with our neighbors. Partnering with the Magic of Lights introduces us to thousands of new faces in our community and gives us an opportunity to welcome them to our church for the first time.

This partnership ultimately benefits Water of Life/CityLink's effort to collect toys for our Annual Toy Store. For more information about the event, click here
