Thanks to all who participated in Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry. Our goal was to provide 30 boxes and we fell a little short. We provided a total of 23 boxes! Your generosity will help to brighten the lives of children around the world and share with them the love of Christ.
You ca still Build a Box Online – This year you can participate in Operation Christmas Child without leaving the comfort and safety of your own home by building a shoebox online! Simply go to www.samaritanspurse.org and you can select items for your box. You will be asked for a $25 donation to cover the cost of the items, which you will need to pay online. If you choose to contribute in this way, please let Kim Albert know by sending a quick text (579-5011) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) so we can get an accurate count of boxes donated from our church.
We collected $1750. Thanks to all who contributed!
