Each year during the Christmas season LSC comes together for our annual GIVE campaign. GIVE is an opportunity for each of us to celebrate and love on others in our community. This year we would like GIVE 2020 to be an opportunity to show our sincerest love, appreciation and admiration for the teachers and staff of our neighborhood schools. For two weeks in December we will shower the teachers and staff at Riley High School and Monroe Primary School with many different gifts and surprises. We know there is no possible way to take away the stress and burdens they’ve carried during this very difficult year. But we hope to remind them that they are real heroes in our eyes. We don’t want to ruin all the surprises for the 225 teachers and staff at these two schools, so stay tuned for more details on what’s to come. The LSC staff has already been planning and working on a budget so we can set a goal and challenge you, our faithful Living Stoners, to rise up and be part of GIVE 2020. This year we are collecting monetary donations to go directly to GIVE and our goal is to collect $5,000. To be clear, this monetary goal is above and beyond our weekly tithes and offerings. We pray that you and your family can have conversations and pray for God to guide you with a spirit of generosity during the Christmas season. Special designated GIVE 2020 funds can be made electronically on our LSC App or through our website. You can also mail or drop off your special contributions to the church. GIVE 2020 launches today and we will accept gifts through Christmas Eve.
