We are distributing shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child again this coming Sunday, November 9. This is a ministry managed by Samaritan’s Purse, a nondenominational christian organization that offers physical and spiritual aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, they have provided emergency relief to victims of war, poverty, and natural disasters. They provide community development and vocational education in impoverished neighborhoods and villages.
There will be a table in the narthex with the boxes there. Simply take the box, determine if you want to give gifts a boy or girl and to what age group: 2-4, 5-9, 10-14. Fill the box with gifts. Please do not wrap the boxes. You may wrap the top of the box, if you wish, but it is not required.
Please return your boxes on Sunday, November 16.
