Operation Christmas Child - The Stewardship committee is again sponsoring our collections for Operation Christmas Child, a program of Samaritan’s Purse. This program collects shoeboxes filled with gifts and delivers them to children in need around the world. Along with the gifts, Gospel booklets called The Greatest Gift are included in each shoebox to help the recipients learn about God’s Greatest Gift, His Son, Jesus Christ.
Ways to help:
- Donate gifts (Please see flyer for suggestions
- Sponsor a shoebox by giving a $9 donation (made payable to “Samaritan’s Purse” with “Operation Christmas Child” written in the memo section) to cover shipping
- Pray for Samaritan’s Purse, the Operation Christmas Child program, and most importantly, the children who will receive shoeboxes
NOTE: All gifts and checks must be at the church by Sunday, November 3. Boxes for the items collected will be in the narthex.
St. Andrew's Food Pantry - Please consider bringing in a few canned or other non-perishable food items. We bring the donations over to St. Andrew's Food Pantry once a month.
