Operation Christmas Child ends November 12! Our goal this year is 200 boxes, so please bring your boxes each week so excitement will grow as we see the tower getting taller!!  If you would prefer to give a cash donation, it may be put in the offering plate (please be sure to label it Operation Christmas Child) or put it in the donation jar on the shelf in the north lobby.

Small notepads, coloring books, pencils, crayons, fun pens, erasers, a small doll, ball or stuffed animal – these are wonderful gift ideas that ANY child would love. Don’t forget about those simple hygiene items that many of us take for granted (minus toothpaste).  If you are able to include shipping, each box costs $10 to ship. Check out https://www.samaritanspurse.org/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/ for videos and further instructions. The boxes will be delivered to Grand Island the third week of November.  Thank you for your generosity!  Contact Angela Dibbert (402.429.2634) with any questions.
