Christmas In August

Our children will be involved in a mission project "Christmas In August" and there is plenty of opportunity for the church family to participate.

Christmas In August is a program designed to bless missionaries and church planters. Our kids are adopting a family who are serving in New Orleans, Louisiana and they have 5 children ages ranging from ages 2-16.

Here is a list of donations that will bless this family and make their outreach more productive:

children's art supplies
children's playing cards
card games (small card games)
flashlights and batteries
gift cards (Starbucks, Home Depot, Lowe's, chain restaurants, Wal-Mart,etc.)
LifeWay gift cards (primarily for church needs, i.e., Bibles, gospel tracts, church supplies)
Office Depot gift cards (for church needs)
hygiene supplies(toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, deodorant, etc.)
pocket New Testaments (Holman Christian Standard, English Standard Version, NKJV, or other modern translation)
school supplies

Thank you for your support and encouragement for our kids as they reach out and grow in missions.
