COUPONING FOR COMMUNITYClick here for this week’s DOLLAR (and under) Deals to Donate.
Last month LMPC came in second among churches in giving to WE CARE with 760 pounds donated for a total of 4,490 pound to date. Our goal this year in 7,000 pounds. Thanks for your generosity. Let’s keep it up. I don’t know about you, but I’m a little competitive and would like to see us number one every month! In all honesty, We Care inventory is at a historic low and they really do need our help! Please consider bringing a can or two every Sunday to donate.
WE CARE OCTOBER NEEDS: Soup (Regular & Chunky), Spaghettios, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Baked Beans, SPAM, Canned Tuna, Canned Salmon, Vienna Sausages.
Please keep all the volunteers and clients of We Care in your prayers!
OCTOBER 7th IS OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD “KICK-OFF” SUNDAY This year LMPC is providing the boxes for you to fill. A display and boxes will be available on the lawn outside the Narthex after church.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD (OCC) (fill shoe boxes with small toys, school supplies & hygiene items to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to needy children around the world). Click here for “How to Pack a Box” gift ideas and instructions (Party City had some great $0.10-$0.99 filler items). These are great to fill alongside your child, a neighbor’s child, grandchild, niece or nephew. If completing with a child, consider having them color and include the “All About Me” coloring pages. Another idea for both adults & children is to draw your hand on a card or piece of paper and color it or put a message inside such as “This is my hand. When you place your hand on mine, think about me. I prayed for you to get this box.” Prayer is the cornerstone of Operation Christmas Child.
FOLLOW YOUR BOXaround the world Please also donate $7 for each shoe box you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs. You can write a check to Samaritan’s Purse (note “OCC” on memo line) and place it in envelope provided on top of the gift items inside your box or even better yet, find out the destination of your shoe box by donating online at: www.samaritanspurse.org/occ
