Operation Christmas Child Family Night

This Wednesday, November 18th is our third annual all-church family night.  On this evening, all of the Wednesday night ministries are canceled and everyone gathers at the church.  It is for all ages not just those with kids in Wednesday night ministries.  Our family night includes a meal provided by the church, fun/learning, and filling Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes.

Last year, we filled around 100 boxes.  So, we would like to try to match the number again this year.  Below you will find the suggested items to donate as well as those items that are not allowed.

You can also donate $7/box for shipping costs.

We hope to see you next Wednesday!
