Love Thy Neighbor 2.0
Did anybody miss the Christmas project in 2020? I sure did! It has always been a favorite at Live Oak! Being able to bless those who are working on Christmas Eve. Knowing we were going to have to change things up in 2020, we pivoted and came up with another idea of loving our neighbors. And it still didn’t happen!
But, we don’t have to wait until Christmas to bless others! So on March 6th, at 10:00am, at the Ministry Center, we will try again! Love Thy Neighbor Version 2.0 is happening! We will fill goodie bags with hygiene items and cereal for our neighbors in Shady Glen! We need your help in putting the bags together and giving them out. This is a great service project to get your kids involved in!
Items still needed, by Tuesday, March 2nd, are: deodorant (men’s and women’s), toothpaste, shampoo, and Cheerios. You can bring them to church this Sunday. Think of it as a Green Bag Sunday without the green bags! Or drop them off at the office Monday and Tuesday. #buildingbridges, #forwardtogether, #recklessgenerosity
Family Promise Needs
We have been Compassion Partners with Family Promise of Beaufort County for several years. In the past our partnership included serving dinner and staying with the families at Low Country Presbyterian Church. With COVID, the families have been staying in hotels. As you can imagine, this is very costly for Family Promise. And it also eliminates our serving opportunity. However, we were provided with another way to help. Current grocery costs are $250/week.
If you’re looking for a way to make an immediate impact on a family in need, please
consider purchasing Food Lion Gift cards, in small denominations ($10 – $20) and sending them to Family Promise 181 Bluffton Rd D101, Bluffton, SC. 29910. You can also drop them off M-F from 9:00-3:00pm. #recklessgenerosity
Register for In Person Services
It is so great to be back to church! Our in person services are going well. Hopefully everyone feels safe in regards to our COVID protocols. If you haven’t registered for this week’s services, please do so! Registration closes at 9:00pm on Saturday night.
As a reminder our Kid’s Ministry is up and running at the 10:45 services. Volunteers are in place to love on your kiddos! We have limits established for each age group and there is plenty of space to spread out. All volunteers are temperature checked that morning.
