Christmas Stockings for South Texas

Although our South Texas mission trip has been cancelled, we still plan to provide Christmas Stockings for children this year. Our goal is to fill 1,200 Christmas Stockings for children on both sides of the border. The local pastors pick up these stockings and distribute them to the children in the area. For many of these children, this is their only Christmas gift. Help us bless these children with your Life Group’s donation of:
