Lottie Moon Christmas Post Office Open for Operation

Staff of Hillcrest Baptist Church met with church member Terri Parker early Tuesday afternoon to discuss an exciting mission opportunity for believers in the Hillcrest community. It is called the Lottie Moon Christmas Post Office. Parker and her team are inviting everyone in the faith community to participate.
“The idea is to donate [to the Lottie Moon Offering] the amount it would cost in postage to send Christmas cards, but you may make a donation in any amount you desire,” Parker mentioned. “We accept cash or checks. Checks may be made out to Hillcrest Baptist Church. If you want a record of your gift, use one of the Lottie Moon envelopes located at the Connect Desk.” 
The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering–the effort for which the postcard project is supporting–is an annual offering that takes places at all Southern Baptist Churches across the nation. All donations from this offering go to support foreign missionaries around the world.
Many of these missionaries live in hostile or unsafe environments and live among people who have never heard the good news of Jesus Christ. All of the missionaries have sacrificially relocated their families to a location that is inconvenient, according to God’s leading upon their lives. They labor in the field to evangelize with the lost and make disciples who make disciples. They build God’s kingdom here on the earth, among people of the uttermost parts of it.
Parker says that from December 4 through January 1, the Post Office will be open for operation. All cards must have the FIRST and LAST names. People are able to pick up their cards at any of the posted times of operation (see below). 
“Please remember,” Parker adds, “just because you don’t send cards doesn’t mean your friend won’t send them to you! Please come by and check for your mail!”
  • Dates of Operation: December 4 through January 1
  • Hours of Operation: open before and after each service (services are at 9 am and 10:30 am on Sundays) | more specifically, Sundays at 8 am to 8:45 am, 10:00 to 10:15, and 12 noon to 12:30 pm
  • Location: located in the church lobby outside the Worship Center. Look for the big red mailbox! The room beside it is where the “postman workers” are sorting and distributing your letters.
