Operation Christmas Child 2017

Have you seen our new display for OCC Shoebox Gifts this year? You can pick up boxes anytime during October to fill at home (please take the extra items provided to get started!). Then, on Nov 12, bring your filled boxes to the church (please do not bring in boxes earlier). We will have a fellowship celebration as we send the boxes on their way to children around the world. A group photo with all the boxes will be taken, prayers said for the children who will receive them, and we’ll load them up after worship to be delivered. Diann Wandrey

And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” Mark 16:15

Once again this fall, you will have an opportunity to win an incredible gift basket filled with 10 gift cards valued at $300. Thrivent is helping us raise the funds to mail the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes that you have been taking home to fill. They have provided Action Cards that will be used for the gift card raffle items as well as the November 12 celebration when the drawing will be held.

This year, beginning on Sunday, October 22, and each Sunday afterward for the next three Sundays, you will be able to purchase raffle tickets for that gorgeous gift basket. The tickets are: one ticket for $5; three tickets for $12; or five tickets for $20.

Not only will you have the opportunity to win a great gift that can make your Christmas special, but what joy the children around the world will have opening up those wonderful Shoeboxes!
