New Month, New Cause
This December, every 5 Facebook check-ins, reviews, or Instagram tags will provide the gift of a book to a child in Tanzania. We’re working with Reach by Causely and Books for Africa to make it happen. You can add #givebooks when you check in to promote the cause. For more information about this month’s charity, check out booksforafrica.org
Be sure to bring your green bags back this Sunday filled with new books for kids ages 0-12! We will donate them to Bluffton Self Help for the Christmas shop. Let’s help give the gift of reading this season!
If you picked up an order form last week from one of out students, be sure to return it this Sunday along with a check made out to Live Oak Christian Church. This will ensure you receive your gift cards on Sunday, December 16th. If you didn’t get an order form, you can download one here.
Christmas Eve Service Project
Looking for something to do on Christmas Eve? Need to keep the kids busy? Come on over to the Ministry Center that morning at 10:00am. We will be putting together goodies bags and baskets to deliver to the folks who are working that day! All ages are welcomed. Once the bags are done, we will send you out to deliver (around noon) throughout our community. It’s a great way to spread some Christmas cheer!
Christmas Eve Service
Join us Christmas Eve at 6:30pm on our property on State Street for Christmas Eve Under the Stars! Fire pits will be set up, bring a chair or a blanket to sit on. We will sing some Christmas songs and hear a short Christmas message. Hot chocolate (or lemonade, depending on the temperature) will be available.
We are so ready for a home! Here are 3 ways to help:
Take a few minutes every Monday at 1:30 to pray for Live Oak's home.
For the next 21 months join us for a day fasting on the 21st of every month.
Pray about and commit to donate to the HOME GIFT.
By the end of the year our goal is collect $100,000. This will allow us to send $50,000 to our compassion partners in the Ukraine and Thailand. The remaining $50,000 will be used to start developing plans for our new home!
