Each year during the month of October you begin to see red and green shoeboxes filing our sanctuary and family life center. These boxes are selected by our church members and then filled to the top with toys and treats for children all over the world.
If you've never heard of this ministry, I encourage you to visit https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/who-we-are/our-history/history-of-operation-christmas-child/ and discover how it all began in 1990 with a father of four and developed into a ministry that supplies over 1 million children around the world with the message of Christ.
Our church also serves as a collection site for our area. We will begin collecting boxes Monday, November 12th through Monday, November 19th. The site will be open Monday the 12th through Friday the 16th from 4:00 - 6:00 PM, Saturday the 17th from 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM, Sunday, the 18th from 2:00 - 6:00 PM and Monday the 19th from 10:00 AM to noon.
