Operation Christmas Child
For the second year in a row the youth of our congregation participated in the Shoe box Minis- try – Operation Christmas Child. After a successful spaghetti dinner and media sale, 7 kids and 4 adults went shopping. Each of our youth were responsible for shopping for two shoe boxes with a specific age range and gender. They were reminded of the customs restrictions of no food, liquids or war toys. We are so proud of the thoughtfulness, care and consideration that went into the planning and packing of each box! Not only were they filled with practical items such as toiletry kits and school supplies, each child received a new hat,
a hand knitted stuffed animal, and toys or art supplies. The youth packed 14 boxes total, which is 4 more than last year. Additionally, they have set a new goal for next year of 25 boxes. Many thanks to the congregation for your support in helping our youth achieve their service project goals.
