OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
We were able to buy all the plastic boxes we need for our church packing project! Thank you for your support. Watch the kiosk for the weekly goal of a particular item to go into these boxes. If you would like to purchase a plastic box for the OCC boxes you are packing at home you may sign up on the Wittenberg Door. The cost of each box is $2. If you are packing boxes at home and wondering about age categories, OCC groups children by gender 2 - 4, 5 – 9, 10 – 14. You may wish to keep this in mind when packing your boxes. Happy packing!
“I AM A CHURCH MEMBER”
If you have attended an Inside Good Shepherd group and your book, “I am a Church Member,” is sitting on your shelf, gathering dust, would you please return it to Pastor Don and he’ll recycle it to another person. Thanks. It makes us better stewards by recycling.
