Once again Grace Church will be joining churches around the country by participating in Operation Christmas Child, a non-profit outreach started by Franklin Graham.  To participate, pick up a brightly colored Christmas Child Shoebox, fill it with Christmas gifts for a needy child and a note from you.  Include a picture if you can.  Pray for your child.  Bring your shoebox back to church by November 4 and we will take them to a distribution center.  A donation of $9.00 per box pays for shipping regardless of destination.  Youth Sunday School classes at Grace will be participating by filling boxes and learning that giving is fun and fulfilling.  Adult Classes are encouraged to fill boxes and also to donate funds for shipping boxes that the children fill.  Gift ideas are available for boys or girls, ages 2-4, 5-9 and 10-14.  There are some restrictions so be sure to check the list.  Can we fill 100 shoeboxes?  That is roughly one per person attending on Sunday.  Let’s do it!
