Christmas for Christ Service
Our annual Christmas for Christ Service will be held on Sunday, December 18. This is the day we give our first gifts to Jesus by giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. For those new to Oak Park, Lottie Moon was an international missionary to China who gave her life to the service of the Lord. We honor her each year at Christmas with a special offering that is given to the work of missionaries around the world. This offering will be in addition to our regular time of giving. Please be in prayer about what the Lord would have you give. Our church goal this year is $12,000. The week of prayer will be December 11-18.
Christmas Card Exchange
We have a box for everyone to give Christmas cards to each other located on a table in the hallway by the activity center. Just place your card in the alphabetic slot of the person you are giving a card. And don’t forget to check your own box as well.
