Operation Christmas Child was started in 1993 by Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham with 11,000 boxes.
Samaritan's Purse sponsors Operation Christmas Child. They have been filling shoeboxes for 25 years. Over 157 million gift boxes have been distributed to 150 different countries.
Toys (dolls, balls, cars), books, pencils, crayons, and notebooks, plus hygiene items, soap, toothbrushes, wash cloths and combs are placed in the shoeboxes, age appropriate.
There is a follow-up discipleship program for the children to learn about Jesus and the good news of the Christian message.
Shoeboxes will be collected on Sunday, November 11, and November 18, so they may arrive to the children in time for Christmas.

Sunday Morning Adult Forum
Fr. Dan will be offering an Adult Forum on Sunday Mornings. Immediately following 9:30 am Worship, please join us in Martin Hall for Fellowship and coffee and snacks. Once folks have had time to get coffee and socialize, we will then begin our one hour program. Programs will be a mixture of interesting videos and/or Bible Study with opportunity for group discussion and interaction. Programs will normally be limited to one hour and will conclude before 12 Noon.
FLOWERS FOR CHRISTMAS
If you would like to memorialize loved ones with a donation toward Christmas Flowers, kindly send your donation to the church office or place it in the Sunday collection plate.
Forms will be available in the Sunday bulletins the first 3 Sundays of December. Make sure the donor and recipient names are clearly written and please note “Altar Guild-Christmas” in the check memo.
All donations must be in the office by Monday, December 17th.
