We will be starting up our annual focus on Operation Christmas Child soon!  This is where we collect shoeboxes packed with small gifts for children around the world.  If you intend to participate this year, please be aware that many stores are currently having summer clearance and back to school sales.  This is a great time of year to pick up fun and useful items for your shoebox at a great price!  Some suggested items include colored pencils, coloring books, toothbrushes, combs, small stuffed animals, etc.  We have empty red and green boxes available at the church if you would like to get one started now (see Lura Townsend or Rachel Bear to get one).  We begin campaigning October 2 and will deliver the boxes in mid-November (6 Sundays).  If you have any questions, contact Angela Dibbert (402.429.2634).
