Quote: Rules Without Relationships

We're starting a new tradition on the Walnut Creek blog by adding thought-provoking quotations. We pray and trust that they will encourage and strengthen you in your walk with Christ.

Volunteers Prepare for the Christmas in July Party

Volunteers from Walnut Creek's downtown congregation are busy setting up for another installment of Christmas in July. The event benefits Operation Christmas Child, a ministry of Samaritan's Purse that  encourages caring people to pack shoe box gifts for needy children in Jesus' name.

The event is this evening, July 20, at The Downtown Church in Des Moines' East Village. The box-packing party runs from 6:30-9:30pm. Click below for more information and learn how you can help: http://thedtc.org/events/2012/07/christmas-in-july

Lots of games are planned for the evening
