Operation Christmas Child Wrapping Party!
November 24, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Send Good News and Great Joy!
Over the years, Living Word has partnered with Samaritans Purse sending gifts to children to the most impoverished areas, the gift of hope and Jesus. It is beautiful to receive but even more of a blessing to give. How you can help? Bring in shoe boxes! (Top and bottom separate preferably). Decide as a family how many shoe boxes you would like to fill. A simple gift will bless a child this Christmas.Next- you can either make your shoe boxes at home or join us on Sunday November 24th after service for the Wrapping Party in The Rock Center. There will be a short break after service to grab some lunch nearby or please bring a packed lunch.
If you decide to wrap the shoe box at home, please Christmas wrap the top and bottom of the box separately in order to open for inspection at center. INCLUDE $9 donation to cover the shipping cost in a check to Samaritans Purse with the memo Operation Christmas Child. All Wrapped Boxes must be at the church NO LATER than Sunday November 24th. Boxes will not be received after that date.
