CLC Valpo Sunday School Stewardship Focus = Operation Christmas Child - Won't You Join Us & Give This Christmas Away !

The next Sunday School Stewardship Focus at Christ Lutheran Church in Valparaiso, IN is to collect small items (toys, hygiene items, hard candy, small books) to be packed in shoe boxes and shipped overseas as a part of Operation Christmas Child which is a global ministry project of Samaritan's Purse.

Additionally, we are collecting donations to cover the shipping of each gift wrapped shoe box as well.

To learn more about this wonderful ministry, please watch the video below and consider joining the CLCValpo Sunday School Children and their families in collecting items for the shoe boxes through November 22nd, 2010 or consider a donation for shipping costs. Give This Christmas Away!

God Bless You!

There will be Music Interludes every hour by talented congregational members either playing musical instruments or singing.

Each half hour on the Hour, there will be Readings from the Scripture by CLC members who have chosen to share passages that inspire them to pray.

The rest of the time will be for silent reflection, Bibles will be provided, to read and reflect on God's word.

The Sunday School children are making prayer beads to give out as gifts to those attending.

A Host Table will be set up with volunteer Greeters - and a special keepsake scrapbook made by a talented member for guests to sign in will be located here.

We will have plenty of Prayer Request Forms that guests can fill in and leave with us - for their prayer requests to be lifted up at Future Sunday Services.

Also, There will be a collection of prayers written by congregation members that will be sealed and buried in a Time Capsule in our planned PRAYER WALK which connects our corner parcel of Church land to the existing Community Walking Paths!

If you can join us in person, or even take time to pray with us from a remote location that day, we would welcome it!

For those unable to attend, but who wish to submit a prayer request in advance please feel free to email with "Prayer Request" as the topic in your email.

The Little Lamb preschool children will be singing a song and praying at 10:15 am and 1:15 pm.
