It’s time to start thinking about Christmas shopping . . . at least for all those Operation Christmas Child boxes you are going to fill! We have shoe boxes available for you to pick up at church and start filling with all kinds of goodies for children around the world.
We will also need volunteers each day during collection week to greet people, collect boxes, pray over the boxes, and share some Christmas cheer with the folks who come to drop off boxes. Please respond by email to register to help.
Collection dates for this year are November 13-20.
Here is the schedule:
Monday, November 13, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Tuesday, November 14 thru Friday, November 17, 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Saturday, November 18, 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Sunday, November 19, 12 p.m – 3 p.m.
Monday, November 20, 8 a.m. – 10 p.m.
November 20 is also “load the tractor trailer day,” so we’ll need some strong people to help get those cartons in the trailers!
