Join us as we pack Shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child (OCC) on Wednesday November 18th at 6:30pm.
We are collecting donated gift items to go in the shoe boxes from October 1st through November 18th. Drop off donations at our church offices and look for our donation drop off tables in mid October.
We begin collecting shoe boxes on November 1st and all shoe boxes are due by Nov 18th.
We encourage everyone to join us at the church-wide packing party for a great time of service and fellowship!
