Operation Christmas Child

You may recall that some of the shoeboxes we packed last fall were destined for distribution in Ukraine. They have arrived!  Children in that country once clouded by the darkness of communism have been blessed by our gifts and by hearing about Jesus!  We are privileged to be a part of training up a new generation of believers.  Please continue to pray for the children and those who will disciple them.

                  Our students are enjoying their first days of summer vacation and may not want to think about back-to-school shopping right now. However, school supplies will soon be on sale in the stores!  When we provide a few basic supplies in our shoeboxes, it sometimes means that the children who receive them may be allowed to attend classes!!  Please use the sheets in the foyer to make a pledge to provide school supplies for children in need.

                  Since our first Harvest Bazaar ended, we have been making plans for the second.  Please mark your calendar for Sept. 21 and plan to spend the day with your church family to raise funds to ship our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to children around the world.  There will be a planning meeting on July 9 at 7 p.m. in the church library for the bazaar. The Harvest Bazaar crafters will meet again on July 15 at 6 p.m. in the same location.  Newcomers are always welcome!
