WATERPORT – The Lord’s House held a celebration on Saturday evening after a busy day of distributing toys to more than 100 children.

The Lord’s House since 2008 has partnered with Toys for Tots to have gifts for local children.

The church also shared 41 boxes of food this Christmas season with local families.

The church on Saturday had dinner with about 50 people to thank them for supporting the ministry the past year.

Some of the presents are under the Christmas tree inside the church.

The celebration included music and a dance from youth in the church.
