Project Bethlehem

Project Bethlehem is our Annual Christmas Giving Program providing the Light of Christmas to hundreds of families facing challenging times.

For more than 25 years Project Bethlehem has been a source of light and joy to hundreds of Lawrence families!  Local schools and agencies refer their most vulnerable families to Project Bethlehem, through which each individual receives the blessing of being cared for and appreciated as an important member of the community. 

These families are then matched with our donors, who brighten their Christmas with thoughtfully-selected toys, games, and gift cards from the family’s wish list. These wrapped gifts are delivered to Lazarus House which is the conduit of donors’ goodness and generosity.

Please visit Project Bethlehem – Lazarus House Ministries for more information and to sign up to be a Project Bethlehem donor.

The Gospel message we refer to in our mission statement is clearest to me in Matt. 25 – to see the Christ in those around us who are most in need. This is our call, this is our vocation. This is our identity.
