Loving Our Seafaring Neighbors
Every year at this time we gather items to pack and give to seafarers at the Port of Houston. We have done this for several years in a row, and we have great joy in doing it. Last year we packed 84 boxes. This year our goal is 100 boxes.
The packing and wrapping of these boxes will be on Monday, November 25, at 6:00 p.m. All are invited to help with this joyful time of service. This even is sponsored by the Men in Mission of MLLC.
For this year, please gather items such as these for the men on the ships – you can buy things throughout the time leading up to the packing day, and drop these off at any time. These need to be brought to the church no later than 6:00 p.m. on Monday, November 25, 2019. If you can’t get the items to the church by that time, please donate them for the 2020 project.
There is a large blue storage bin for this purpose in the room directly across from the church office. Here is the list:
