Christmas Boxes for Seafarers 2018

Christmas Boxes 2014 filling

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.

The packing and wrapping of these boxes will be on Monday, November 26, 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 year 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 26, 2018.  If you can’t get the items to the church by that time, please donate them for the 2019 project.

There is a large blue storage bin for this purpose in the room directly across from the church office.  Here is the list:
