OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD UPDATE…
Operation Christmas Child National Collection Week is fast approaching, in less than 1 month, November 15-22! That means we should all be completing our own Shoeboxes we intend to contribute for blessing on Sunday, November 14th. Various groups, in the next few weeks, will be filling the Shoeboxes to be sent from the Washington Free Methodist Church. At this point, it looks as if we will have many inspiring gifts to fill the boxes. A schedule will be shared soon. Thank you so much for your donations and volunteer time thus far! This OCC mission is saving souls world-wide!
