Christmas in August?

It’s that time again!

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD emphasis is up and running in August and will continue until November 18th when the boxes will be dedicated.  Praise the Lord, our church and friends filled 126 boxes last year.

This year’s Vacation Bible School children donated $501.30 for shipping costs, enough to send 56 boxes. They also contributed enough items to fill about 10 boxes.

The “Go Boxes” are on display. Take one and fill it.
