Operation Christmas Child
It’s that time of year again! Every year during November millions of shoeboxes are packed full of fun gifts for Operation Christmas Child to distribute to children in need while also sharing the Gospel with them. Our Awana program will be sponsoring a packing party and will be collecting supplies through November 9th. We invite you to join us help our children share the love of Christ by giving gifts to children around the world. You can leave items at the Operation Christmas Child table in the foyer or bring them to the church office.
Please have all gifts to the church by November 9th!
