Similar to #Flat Stanley, we thought if could be fun to create a "Where I found Jesus" photo project. We ask LPC members to take photos of your summer trips or fun events and post them. We encourage you to find a prop that resonates with you. It could be a travel bible, a cross necklace, or anything that represents Jesus and faith to you. Once you have your picture, you can either put them on the LPC Facebook page with the hashtag #WhereIFoundJesus or put them on your own facebook page and tag the @LPCjax facebook page. Have fun!
After the Fish Fry, stay and play White Elephant Bingo! White elephant bingo, also called Yankee swap or Dirty Santa, is a party game where a white elephant prize is given to a bingo game winner.

If you have a white elephant item that you would donate for the game, please wrap it up and bring it with you!
