Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is directed by Franklin Graham. Its purpose is to share Christ with needy children in troubled countries around the world. This is done by using a simple shoebox! All you need to do is take a plastic shoebox from the OCC display in the foyer, fill the shoebox with items for a boy or girl (please no war related items, candy, gum, toothpaste, liquids or lotions, medications of vitamins, glass containers, aerosol cans, used or damaged items, food or breakable items), put a note on the lid telling if the gift is for a boy or girl and the age range ( 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14), and include $9.00 in the box for shipping. Please do not donate the OCC money to the church. Place the completed shoebox(s) in the foyer under the pormotional poster or bring it on Collection Sunday, November 14, 2021. If you have any questions, contact Bob Andes, 937-879-2015. Joy to the world, one shoebox at a time.
