It’s Time to Begin Collecting for OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD !!
Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has collected more than 168 million shoeboxes packed with toys and other fun items, and delivered them to boys and girls in need around the world in partnership with local churches. Many boys and girls who receive shoebox gifts also enroll in The Greatest Journey, our 12-lesson follow-up discipleship program, where they learn to follow Christ and share Him with others. Millions of boys and girls have participated in this dynamic course so far.  NOW is the time for us to begin COLLECTING ITEMS which we will later PACK into SHOEBOX GIFTS.  
Here are items you can be on the LOOKOUT for now:
Small stuffed animals, Misc. accessories (hair ties/bows, sunglasses, jewelry …); Hygiene Items (brush/comb, bar soap, wash cloths, toothbrush, (no toothpaste allowed); and craft items. 
There is a COLLECTION BOX in the church !  THANK YOU SO MUCH !!
Note to ALL Sunday Ministry Team members:  The MASTER SCHEDULE is now posted on the 1st BULLETIN BOARD in the hallway.
Be sure to look and note your upcoming service dates.

1.   If you are not available on the date listed, please switch with someone ahead of time so this important ministry position can be filled. 

2.  If you switched or have been notified of a change by the ministry leader, please follow their schedule as this one may not reflect the most current changes. 
Our God is SO WORTHY of our PRAISE !!
See you all on Sunday as we gather together to fulfill our MISSION to “LOVE GOD, LOVE OTHERS, and MAKE DISCIPLES …” in Jesus Name !!
Love you ALL – 
YOU are such a BLESSING !!
Ed and Robin
