Mexicali Christmas Boxes

image

Would you plan to join CCCV in blessing the neighborhood children near Capella Calvario Mexicali as they provide a wonderful outreach to children nearby their church. We can help to offer a meal, fun games and the Lord always provides for each child to receive an age appropriate, wrapped shoe box filled with items that they would otherwise miss. The greatest gift is the Gospel message of Christmas that is shared.

Yearly we send a team to this local church to help the outreach. A small amount of effort, can bring a smile to their face and remind them that Jesus loves them. Please pick up a flyer at the gazebo that has all the gift ideas and guidelines. We ask that the gift boxes be returned by Sunday, December 10th for the outreach on the following Saturday.
