The Body Shop is a Community Outreach Ministry, facilitated by LifeSpring Bible Church, that seeks to shine the light of Jesus Christ by meeting practical needs in the city of Anchorage and its surrounding municipalities. Some of the services we provide include: hosting family events such as our annual Trunk or Treat and Fourth of July BBQ, partnering with local churches and organizations to help feed the homeless, packing shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child, adopting local schools, and much more. We meet once a month, on the third Saturday, to plan events, organize activities, and pray for our city. If you would like to help us love the “least of these,” please email Isaac Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
(cereal, rice, pasta, shelf milk, etc.) to help feed hungry people in the Anchorage area. You can drop off your foodstuffs during our church service on Sundays at 12:00 pm at Wayland Baptist University in Anchorage, or you can contact Vicki Markwell at (907) 440-6286 to arrange an alternative drop-off time and location. You can also give Vicki a cash donation and she will do the shopping for you.
Candy for our Annual Trunk or Treat
Candy can be donated by bringing it to our church service on Sundays at 12:00 pm at Wayland Baptist University in Anchorage or by emailing Pastor Isaac Johnson at email@example.com to arrange alternative collection options. Cash Donations are also welcome.
Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes.
Even though we aren’t packing these shoeboxes till November 2021, we are collecting different items for each month leading up to Christmas. In April, we are asking people to donate toiletries for kids ages 2-14 (toothbrushes, bar soap, combs, hairbrushes, etc.). No liquids or pastes of any kind are permitted. We are also asking people to give stuffed animals and Christian books, since both items often go on sale after easter. Items can be dropped off at our 12:00 pm Sunday church service at Wayland Baptist University, or people can email Pastor Isaac Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange alternative delivery options. We also have an Amazon Wish List people can access here to donate online.
