A Special Invitation:
We have an opportunity to serve and love our neighbors, the service men and women of the Coast Guard. Due to the partial government shutdown, they are expected to miss their second paycheck in a row. We are looking to support them by providing:
Notes of encouragement
$25 gift cards (most useful amount)
Any gasoline gift cards
Any grocery gift cards
Target or Walmart gift cards
Cases of ramen noodles
Bring your gift cards, other donations, and notes of encouragement to church on Sunday, January 27th, 9am-noon, or to the church office, no later than 3:00 pm on Monday, January 28th. The donations will be delivered Monday afternoon to the Los Angeles/Long Beach Coast Guard base on Terminal Island.
This is a great chance to include children in a practical way of serving and loving others. Children are also encouraged to donate pictures or notes of encouragement and thanks for the men and women of the Coast Guard.
