U 18 Fall Mission Project: Operation Christmas Child
What an amazing response we had to our Stuff the Bus Mission for A.R. Lewis Elementary! But, our call to serve others is ongoing, and we now look to a U18 Fall Mission Project to support children all around the world through Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child. All children and youth, and their families are encouraged to begin collecting and donating items for this wonderful mission opportunity. In November, we will have a packing party to pack all of the collected items into shoeboxes, and send them off to be delivered to children across the world.
Here’s a list of what to bring for this month:
September 1st -14th: Toys
(small cars, balls, dolls, stuffed animals, kazoos, harmonicas, yo-yos, jump ropes, small Etch A Sketch, toys that light up or make noise [include extra batteries], Slinky, etc.)
September 15th-31st : Hygiene Items
(toothbrush, tooth paste, mild soap bar, comb, washcloth, etc.)
(Please don’t send damaged or used items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives or military figures; chocolate or food; out-of-date candy;
liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snowglobes or glass containers; aerosol cans)
Please bring all items to the church office.
