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!
Next Sunday, August 29, we will collect a special offering to benefit the victims of the recent earthquake in Haiti. Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) is working to provide relief in the area and all donations will be forwarded to PDA. Checks should be made out to First Presbyterian or use a pew envelope for a cash donation; be sure to mark your check or your envelope for “Haiti Earthquake Relief”. You can also mail or deliver your donation to the church office before August 29
