It is that time of year again when we start preparing for Operation Christmas Child!!
· Plan to join us on Sunday, October 30, right after morning service.
o Bring a sack lunch and meet in the fellowship hall
o Gather as many shoe boxes as you can and bring them with you!
o Bring Christmas wrapping paper, tape and scissors

o Suggested items, age appropriate! All items must be new.
§ Small cars
§ Crayons and coloring books

You get the idea!! It would be great if we could fill all the shoe boxes we wrap on the 30th!! There will be additional boxes available from Operation Christmas Child for those who are unable to join us. This event will be hosted by the Fanner Bees, but we are inviting everyone in the congregation to join us in this project.
