Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Packing is Here! October 17 & 18
The Packing Party weekend is finally here! We are so excited about how generous our church has been, even with a shortened collection window! We have lots of goodies to send to children around the world in the name of Jesus. The official Packing Party is Sunday, October 18th after our morning church service. For those of you who have not been able to join us before, we will have tables set up in the gym with all of the items we have collected sorted and displayed. We have 250 shoe boxes to fill for boys and girls ages 2-14. You will be given a list of what needs to go into each box, and then you will "shop" from the tables to fill the boxes as the Lord leads. Families can participate with their children, so this is an event for everyone.
Due to the Covid restrictions, we have a few changes for this year. First, we will not be doing a group meal, but we encourage you to bring your own lunch and eat in the Fellowship Hall after the service. Second, we will be offering sign up times for small groups who would love to pack a box but do not want to be in a larger group. You will be able to come on Saturday, October 17th and pack boxes. We will have half hour time slots available from 11:30-2:00. Look for a sign up sheet in the Resource Room if you are interested in this option, or if you are not attending church in person during this season, you can call the office to reserve a time slot.
Thank you for your support of this ministry, and continue to pray for those who will receive these gifts of love and hopefully receive the greatest gift of all - Jesus!
