Christmas Giving Project

Here at Lake Houston Church, this year’s giving project is the Child Sponsorship program through Nazarene Compassionate Ministries. There are 5 children in Argentina (all Nazarene pastors’ kids) needing to be sponsored. The cost is $360/year per child.  We are committing as a church to raise $1800 in order to sponsor all 5 of these children for the entire year.  Our missionary friends in Argentina, Wilmar & Jessica Rojas, suggested this project specifically for our church.  Please pray about what you may be able to give toward these sponsorships. Please mark your contribution “Child Sponsorship”.  Donations may be given throughout December and beyond.

Contact: Tori Clapp, 


Tori Clapp is in need of 5 volunteers to help organize and prepare for the visit of our LINKS Missionaries, the Rojas family, in January. The LINKS program gives our church the opportunity to become personally acquainted with Nazarene missionary families and their fields of service. Can you help?
