The Youth Group is packing shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child which is a project through Samaritan Purse which is a
nondenominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual and
physical aid to hurting people around the world. Since 1970, Samaritan’s Purse
has helped meet the needs of people who are victims of war, poverty, natural
disasters, disease, and famine with the purpose of sharing God’s love through
His Son, Jesus Christ.
All of the donations need to be donated
by the week of the November 13. Then all the donations will be shipped
all around the world to kids who are less fortunate.
Please donate $7 or more
for each shoe box you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs.
With your help, we can make a huge difference for
Christmas in the lives of children who are less fortunate.
