It's Shoebox Time! Time for a Pizza Party.
Children’s ministry families (kids 3-10) are invited to attend our annual packing party immediately after the Sunday service on November 19 (lunch provided). If you and your family would like to attend, please RSVP below to let us know how many eaters to expect.
BEFORE the party, decide the gender(s) and age(s) of the recipient(s) and visit the Samaritan's Purse website for details about how to pack a shoebox. We strongly recommend paying online IN ADVANCE using the "Follow Your Box" selection. This will enable you to see where your packages were delivered. Be sure to print your labels at home and bring them to the event! The church will provide OCC shoeboxes, card-making supplies, photos of your kids (taken in CM that morning), and a few extras.
All church members are encouraged to support this gospel-centered ministry by packing boxes donating items, or by giving financially. We'll have empty shoeboxes available at church on Sunday, November 12. If you wish to donate monetarily via cash or check (write "OCC" in the memo line), you may place your contribution in an envelope marked "OCC" in the offering OR give it directly to Ronda Schlosser.
NEW this year: No candy! Shipment is now $9 per box.
