Christmas Boxes for Port of Houston Seafarers – Loving Our Neighbors

By Pastor David Tinker

You are invited to participate in this continued ministry of MLLC.  Each year for several years the Men in Mission of MLLC have organized the caring work of Christmas Boxes for Port of Houston Seafarers.  We have heard that the Seafarers Christmas Boxes are needed more now than ever.  The men on the ships are more isolated than usual due to the COVID19 pandemic.  Our love for these neighbors will help them to know the love of God and to make life less difficult for them.  We will be collecting items and preparing the Christmas Boxes for the Port of Houston Seafarers.  The goal for this year is 100+ boxes.  Items may be placed in the room across from the main church office. New Time and Date:  The Packing Day for the Boxes for Seafarers is Monday, November 29, at 12:00 noon.  The work will take place in the Parlor.  All are invited to participate.

For this year (2021), please gather items such as these for the men on the ships – you can buy things throughout the fall drop these off at any time up until 12 noon of November 29.  There is a large blue storage bin for this purpose in the room directly across from the church office.

The Men in Mission Group does not need boxes this year.  These were provided by Home Depot in Brenham.  See the rest of this list for requested items:
