Camp Pendleton Christmas Outreach
Armor of Light Christmas Outreach at South Mesa Chapel, Camp PendletonThis is the fifth year that we have an opportunity to bless the Marines, Sailors and their families at Camp Pendleton. On Saturday, December 6 we will serve a Christmas dinner, provide games and crafts for the kids, and give away toys/gifts, non-perishable foods and baby supplies.
Thanks to all of you for volunteering to help serve the Marines, Sailors and their families on Saturday, December 6! Please be in prayer for this event, that the LORD will bless all who come.
The following is important information for the event at South Mesa Chapel on Camp Pendleton:
Directions – 5 Freeway south, exit Camp Pendleton Harbor Drive, turn towards the base (away from ocean); at the main gate you may need to show:
Current vehicle registration
Proof of car insurance
Valid Drivers’ License (for the driver)
You may be asked to go to the guard shack and get a day pass.
Go through the gate; turn right at the light, which is Wire Mountain; at the top of the hill turn left at the stop sign (San Jacinto); go about ½ mile and you will see South Mesa Chapel on your right (it is also called Blinder Memorial Chapel). Please be sure to obey all traffic and speed laws.
Parking – The South Mesa Chapel parking lot will be used for the carnival this year, so volunteers need to park in the large parking area just past the South Mesa Chapel parking lot.
