operation christmas child
Grace will once again collect shoeboxes filled with small gifts in support of Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child program. Collection Sunday is November 15. Pick up boxes during worship, during office hours (Tuesday, Thursday, Friday 9:00 - 3:00), or use your own shoebox or purchased plastic ones. Fill the box with items suitable for the either a boy or girl in the age category of your choice (those can be found on the pamphlet included in the boxes or from their website samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child). You can also 'Build a Shoebox Online' at their website. For a $25 donation, you select the gender, age range and the items to include in the box. Note: The pamphlet indicates a $9 shipping cost for each box. It is not necessary to include that in your box. However, a special offering will be taken on November 15 to help defray the shipping expenses. Not planning to be in attendance that Sunday? An offering can also be made online under the "giving" tab (specified for OCC) or mailed to the church.
Boxes can be brought to worship on November 15 OR dropped off at the office on November 10, 12 or 13 from 9-3.
