Operation Christmas Child “Good News.  Great Joy.”

Share God’s love and the Joy of Christmas by packing a gift-filled shoe box for a child overseas.  Your simple gift can make an eternal difference. 

We have 40 preprinted decorative shoe boxes available on the table display in the hallway.  Remember, any standard size shoeboxes or 6-Quart plastic shoe boxes will do.

Information and suggested gifts for the boxes are available on the table in the hallway.  Please remember to include $7.00 or more with each shoe box to help with the shipping and other expenses.

Filled Shoe boxes and $7.00 or more per shoe box need to be dropped off at the church office by Wednesday November 12th so we can get them to the drop off point on time.
