OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX MINISTRY
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to share the joy of Christmas with a child in need! Pick up and fill a “shoe” box! Boxes and instructions will be available in the Narthex on October 14. If possible, we ask that you include $9 to cover shipping. Please fill your box(es) and bring them back to the church before Wednesday, November 14. If you prefer to donate items rather than filling a box, we will accept loose items that can fit inside of a shoebox. If you’d like to make a donation to help cover the cost of shipping the boxes, you can make a donation to the church and designate Operation Shoebox on your envelope.
