Operation Christmas Child: It’s time to fill your shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. You can fill them with toys, personal hygiene items and school supplies to be delivered to children all over the world along with the greatest gift-the Good News of Jesus Christ! Don’t forget your online $9.00 donation for shipping. The deadline to get your boxes in is Nov. 15th, so bring your boxes and drop them off in the Fellowship Hall. This year there is also a Covid-friendly option where you can build your own shoebox all completely online at www.samaritanspurse.org If you have any questions, see Marcy Mutter.
