OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
We will be collecting specific items to go into shoe boxes that will be sent to children in the developing world through Sameritan’s Purse. This is a chance for all of our body to be involved and for many children and their families to read the gospel story, maybe for the first time.
We will have an all-church packing party on Sept. 15th.
Suggested items for the box: (A $9 donation is also requested to help with shipping costs – make check payable to Samaritan’s Purse)
- “Wow” Item: soccer ball w/ pump, doll, stuffed animal, musical instrument, shoes
