House of Prayer is involved in many different ways in our Clear Lake community. Check out some of the upcoming opportunities, and give back for the ways that you have been blessed!
Communities in Schools, November & December This month the weather turns a little cooler, and students have a week long holiday to celebrate Thanksgiving. Therefore, we will be collecting hoodies to fight the dropping temperatures, and non-perishable food items/ microwavable items for students that are on free or reduced cost lunch. Please place your donations in the bins in the Narthex.
 
Also, for some of the disadvantaged youth that attend Clear Lake High School, we are collecting gift cards, in the amount of your choice, for Kroger, HEB, and Walmart. These cards will buy not only food and personal care items, but also gas for transportation.  Please place your donations in the bins in the Narthex. Gloria Dei is partnering with CCISD to sponsor a “store” open to all of their free/reduced lunch families. Parents will be able to shop for gifts at significantly reduced prices to give their children. Gloria Dei has made an Amazon wish list of what students might like and are asking for help with purchases. Deadline to order is December 6. If you cannot donate, you can volunteer at the Store on December 12 at 6pm. Volunteers are requested to help in check-in area, babysitting station, wrapping station, personal shopper station, and food bag station (pass out the bags as they leave.) Thank you for your generosity!
Reverse Advent Calendar, Advent-Christmas Eve
Here’s the idea: As a family, designate a bag or box for collecting items in your home. Each day of the Advent Season, add an item to the bag or box. Bring your collected items to church on Christmas Eve Items will be donated to Interfaith Caring Ministries. 

Family Promise, February 2-9, 2020
We will be hosting at our church families who have been displaced from their homes. There is opportunity for you to make a difference by providing a meal, or serving as an overnight host at the church. For more information, click HERE.
Ashes to Go,
Wednesday, February 26, 2020
Ash Wednesday signals the beginning of the Lenten season in the church, as we remember the sacrifice that Jesus made on the cross. You are invited to join us and receive an ashen cross on your forehead at our Ashes to Go event. Drive into the House of Prayer parking lot and get in line. We will bring the ashes to you, and say a prayer of blessing for you, and you will be on your way.

Feed Galveston, Saturday, May 2, 2020, noon
Join an assembly line of volunteers in packaging meals for those who are hungry in Galveston County! The last packing event at First Lutheran Church in Galveston saw over 50,000 meals packaged and boxed up for those in need. Be a part of the solution to end hunger. You can make a difference!
