OPERATION SHOEBOX

Wow! It is already time to start thinking about our shoebox ministry for Operation Christmas Child.  Our dedication Sunday for the boxes will be Sunday, November 8th.  As a quick reminder, decide if your box will be for a boy or girl and select an age group   2-4, 5-9 or 10-14….fill your box with gifts that are not liquids, breakables, or war-related. You may wrap your box and lid separately … attach label to lid and rubber band lid to box. …and pray for your box’s destination…that it will reach the right child for Jesus. As always, shipping is just as important as the boxes; so, if you can’t do a box and would like to help with international shipping, the cost is $9 per box. Let’s make this a great year where we really make a difference in the lives we touch! 

Questions??   Call Lauran Swain at 324-2225. 

Reminder: do not include candy or toothpaste1world changer
