A big thank you to all those who have so generously donated items for inclusion in the shoe boxes for Samaritans Purse.
We have had to change the date for packing the shoe boxes. We will now be packing on Saturday 22nd October from 9.30am. We would love to have your assistance with this task so please come along and share in the fellowship of the day.
As part of our Mission Plan for 2015 we supported the Operation Christmas Child ministry run by Samaritan’s Purse. We were very successful in our efforts last year and a total of 65 shoe boxes were donated to Samaritan’s Purse for distribution to children living in poverty throughout the Asia Pacific region.
Samaritan’s Purse (Operation Christmas Child) has again been selected as a focus area for our Mission plan for 2016 and our aim is to try and build on our success of last year. The idea is that over the next 10 or so weeks we will 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.
A list of items suitable for inclusion in the shoe boxes has been provided to you on July 24.
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.
At our last Mission Planning Day we agreed to support 3 activities, Samaritan’s Purse, Godly Play and Community Engagement. Please remember to put your name on the list in the foyer to indicate which project you would like to be involved in.
Our next Mission Planning Day will be on Sunday 24th April after church.
You are invited to attend and contribute your thoughts and ideas for the mission of our congregation over the next twelve months.
Our current Mission Focus centres on:
- Pastoral Care
- Engaging Community
This includes: Samaritans Purse, Bible Study, Craft Group, Silver Threads, Prayer Group and Godly Play.
We will be packing the shoe boxes next Saturday, October 24, commencing at 10am, so if you are available your assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you to all those who have donated items for inclusion in the shoe boxes for Samaritans Purse. Your donations (be they goods or cash to help with postage costs) have been gratefully received.
