Operation Christmas Child (OCC)

Operation Christmas Child (OCC)

Every year we have as a church participated fully in this ministry!  And nothing is going to stop our continued participation in this world wide discipleship effort!!!  Franklin Graham echos our own thoughts, that the world needs this effort NOW more than ever!  Shaun and her team have been collecting items and we already have shoe boxes to fill!!!  But we need your help, with school supplies in the stores abound and this weekend being tax free weekend scoop up some extra goodies to do one, two or a few boxes to share!  
If we can’t meet and do our normal box filling with the children, we’re planning an alternative!  We’ll have a drive through drop off!  So take some time, make it a family effort – you will be AMAZED at how much our wonderful children want to help other kids worldwide.  KIDS HELPING KIDS!!  Please let us know if you need any boxes and remember there are specifics on what CANNOT be sent.  We’ve attached the below link with helpful information  for your convenience.  We will need to have all boxes ready by November 13th, so that’s plenty of time right?
