You might like to take part in collecting gift donations for the Shoe Box ministry that we have been a part of in the past. This year we are hoping to fill 200 boxes! We are also raising funds to send those boxes overseas. Check out the right side of the board for ideas that can go into the boxes as some things have changed! More information will come for this project!
