The Youth of Messiah Lutheran Church participated again this year in a workshop for Operation Christmas Child. They wrapped presents for the Foster Children’s Alliance, packed and wrapped shoebox packages for Samaritan’s Purse, decorated cookies for military personnel and college students and made food tray savers for Meals on Wheels clients. The North Alabama Thrivent Chapter along with the Grace Lutheran Church youth hosted the event at Grace Lutheran Church in Huntsville, AL. Thanks to all of the youth members, parents, and sponsors who participated in this year’s event. Their efforts will certainly help brighten Christmas for many members of our community and those in need around the World.
