SERVE

November Food Cupboard Needs: pancake mix, syrup, pork & beans, mashed potatoes, spaghettios & ravioli, cookies, juice, toothbrushes, toothpaste

Thank you to the many people in our own congregation who have given of their time and talent on behalf of Operation Christmas Child.  Flo Moyer, Sam and Linda Sheterom, Aislynn Sias, Deena Van Scoy and Frank Hicks have given countless hours working on craft items to be given to the children receiving the OCC shoeboxes and deserve a special recognition.  Thank you also to the many others who faithfully helped at craft sessions and sewed pillowcase dresses, groomed Barbie dolls, wrapped bars of soap, sharpened pencils, braided jump ropes -- did whatever tasks you were given to help do!  Thank you also to all who have donated items or given money to help with the shoeboxes.  AGAIN, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!

At the PACKING PARTY Sunday evening, we were able to pack 526 shoeboxes (the exact total number of shoeboxes we gave last year)!  The shoebox packing is not done yet though!!!  More shoeboxes will continue to be packed this week. 

This Monday thru next Sunday our church will be a SHOEBOX DROP-OFF LOCATION serving as a local place for others in the community to leave their shoeboxes.  Then next Sunday we will take ALL the shoeboxes to a Regional Drop-Off Site, and praise the Lord for the privilege of helping reach others for Jesus Christ.  A sign-up sheet is in the front foyer listing the times available you can help as a Drop-Off Location volunteer and to pack more shoeboxes.  Again, thank you!!!

Please Note - There will be an Informational 2018 Church Budget Meeting on Sunday, November 19th at 2:30 pm.
