At the Mission Planning Meeting last Sunday it was decided that, as a congregation, we would look to increase our support for Operation Christmas Child run by Samaritans Purse. There are various ways we can support Operation Christmas Child and some handouts have been given to you in the current newsletter, outlining what is already being done and other support opportunities available.
One specific action agreed at the meeting was, that as a group we would look to fill and donate 10 – 15 shoe boxes to Operation Christmas Child. The idea is tat over the next five weeks, commencing on August 30, we would collect items for inclusion in the shoe boxes and then gather on a Saturday in early October (date TBA) to pack the shoe boxes as a group.
This is a great opportunity to help a worthy cause that benefits children who have very little. Everyone is encouraged to help, as and where they are able. Please continue to pray for the success of Operation Christmas Child.
