SAMARITAN’S PURSE OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

Happens in November and December

We put together a shoe boxes filled with goodies and necessities that will be sent around the world to children in desperate need.

Please pick up a brochure in the Narthex or on the mission board by the backdoor lobby area. It gives you some great ideas on how to pack your shoe box, as well as how to donate the $9.00 for shipping; make checks out to Samaritan’s Purse.

Last year Samaritan’s Purse delivered 10,000,000 boxes to children all around the world. Direct questions the mission committee

OLD TONER CARTRIDGES & OLD CELL PHONES

What to do with all those old empty printer cartridges and old cell phones? Bring them in and put them in the collection bench located in the Chapel hallway… lift the seat! We send them in for two reasons: one, they are recycled and two, we make a little money that is used to help fund the youth mission trips. It’s really a win, win situation. Thanks again!
