WHAT ARE LIVE OAK’S FALL GIVING INITIATIVES?
Live Oak seeks to be generous and “others” focused year round. Every Fall we amp up this effort by challenging you to participate in our FALL GIVING INITIATIVES.
- These are very tangible, practical ways to love and reach out to those in need.
- This is giving above and beyond our normal tithing.
- We will impact those in need both near and far!
GIVE 2023 CONCLUDES ON
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Pack a gift-filled shoebox for a child in need living across the globe. Every Child who receives a shoebox gift can also opt into a program called “The Greatest Journey” which teaches them the gospel of Jesus Christ.
You may use the boxes Live Oak provides (available in the auditorium beginning October 29). Please note packing instructions and labels are inside each box.
You can use your own shoebox or shoebox-sized tupperware. You can head HERE to find packing instructions and printable labels.
THERE IS NO LIMIT TO HOW MANY BOXES LIVE OAK CAN CONTRIBUTE!
HYGIENE KITS FOR LUBBOCK IMPACT
Support the feet-on-the ground ministry at Lubbock Impact!
Pack a bag with hygiene essentials. These will be given to those living in economic hardship in the Lubbock community who are served by Lubbock Impact and will contain self care items that many of us take for granted.
Please use only the bags provided by Live Oak (beginning October 29- first come, first served), as Lubbock Impact can only receive a set # of bags, due to storage limitations. Lists of items to purchase are attached to the bags themselves.

RAISE THE ROOF: Lighthouse Training Center, piedras Negras
We are partnering with supported missionary, Yolanda Sessions, to help replace the roof of the Lighthouse Training Center in Piedras Negras, Mexico. This training center is the hub for:
- Pastoral leadership training opportunities
- Women’s teas and seminars
- Children’s summer camps
- Youth conferences
- Marriage seminars
All of which equip, disciple and pour into men, women and children of northern Mexico.
Yolanda and her late husband, Ken, are Live Oak’s longest supported missionaries, building disciples among the nations since 1980!
HERE IS HOW IT WORKS:
- You can give toward the roof this in 2 ways:
1. Head to our ONLINE GIVING easily found on our App or HERE. Choose “Raise the Roof-Missions Fund” on the dropdown menu and donate.
2. TEXT TO GIVE – text your dollar amount with the word “roof” to 84321 (example: 50 roof). Note: no dollar sign is needed; the word roof is necessary or else your amount will go into our general fund)
