It's time once again to start preparing for our annual Thanksgiving Box Project! This is a service opportunity in which we put together and deliver boxes of food to help those who are in need in Lake County.  

How Can I Help?

Prepare a Dinner Box

Collect the items listed for one of the boxes below, and pack them in a Bankers box measuring 12”w x 15”d x 10”h with a lid. The contents will fit in one box. If you like to add more things to your box, then feel free to fill 2 boxes of this size. These are the boxes that are easiest to carry and the most sturdy when filled! We will have empty boxes available at the back table on Sunday mornings. 

Drop Off Sundays

From Sunday October 21st to Sunday, November 11th, you can drop off bring your completed box to church. We will need a couple of people to help us get the dinner boxes into the church van after the service. You can also drop off your boxes at the church office during the week. 

Help Distribute the Meals

Join us at the church office on Saturday, November 17th at 10 am. We will pray together and then distribute boxes in teams.

If you know someone who would appreciate a box delivery on this day, please contact Cairn Novak at

Make a Contribution

You can also make a contribution to help cover the cost of the turkeys or one complete box. Please write “Lake County Box Project” on the memo line of your check. The cost of one complete box is $38.00. Please write "Lake County Box Project" on the memo line of your check.
