International Christmas Celebration
Saturday, December 3, 2016
International Ministries Center
(605 Texas Place)
We look forward to celebrating our Lord’s birth with people from many nations at the International Ministries Center on December 3, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. for the International Christmas Celebration. I would like to invite you and your church family to be a part of the celebration this year.
The theme this year is A Little Like Heaven. The evening will begin with fellowship around the table with various International foods. There will be drama and Christmas Carols by the language churches’ choirs. Doug Wilson will be the speaker. Gifts will be given out to seafarers and children from the international community.
Each year the International Ministries Center (IMC) collects items for our “little Walmart.” This year we are adding an additional item that we believe will be special to each seaman. We are planning to give each seafarer a new wallet with a $10 Walmart gift card inside. The continuation of toiletry items will still be a part of the gifts. It has been the practice each year to make these items available. It is through these gifts that we have the opportunity to express God’s love to those needing these items. Many parts of our world do not recognize Christ as the real reason for Christmas and we want to make sure they see this from this ministry.
Please bring these items to the IMC or the MBA by November 23, 2016:
• Men’s Wallets
• $10 Walmart Gift Cards
• Crew Neck White T-Shirts (Med., Large and XL sizes only)
• White Tube Socks (Med. and Large only)
• Shaving Creme
• Chewing Gum
• Regular Coffee
• Individually Wrapped Hard Candy
• Cheese Crackers (No peanut butter crackers)
