It is time to pack Operation Christmas Shoeboxes!!! Please pick up a box this Sunday as you leave the sanctuary. If you are not able to be with us at church you can pick up boxes at the church office during the week. We will be packing boxes through November 11th.
Also this year there is a new option to build a box online. If you want to do this go to our own church goal page at this link:

how to pack a shoebox
Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. We will have pre-printed shoeboxes to hand out for free Sunday, October 11.
Girl or Boy?
Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2-4,
5-9, or 10-14
Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
Most importantly, PRAY for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
Donate $9 for the shipping online using the label we provide you with the preprinted box and follow your box to discover the destination of your shoebox gift.
