Operation Shoebox Packing Party this Sunday!

It’s time again for Operation Christmas Child! Please help us share God’s love with a child who needs the gospel. You may take one of our OCC boxes to fill with a special toy or craft, hygiene items, clothing, school supplies, and please include $9 for shipping. Also, consider sending a personal note and photo along with your box to send a little extra love!  Or you can just bring some of the supplies suggested or donate money for shipping costs. 

This year, OCC is asking that we refrain from including any candy or liquid items, including toothpaste and lotion. There will be a Packing Party after church on Nov 19th. Also, you can donate money for shipping costs or pay online and track your box as it makes its incredible journey around the world! Visit https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ to learn more. Please, contact Peyton Elkins if you have any questions. Pizza will be provided for all of our “packers.”  Please, join us!!
