While we can’t do actual shoe boxes this year, we can be supportive of Operation Christmas Child financially. There will be a box at the exit of in person worship next to the offering basket where you may place donations that will be sent along to Operation Christmas Child at the end of the month of October.
In November we know that the Fellowship of Concern will not be able to have their Community Thanksgiving Service this year. As a result with an eye to reaching out in our local area we will have a place for you to place special gifts for the Fellowship of Concern which we will send to them at the end of November.
In December, we will focus on the Fairfield Children’s in Old Mutare, Zimbabwe, a wonderful orphanage in Africa. We will have a receptacle out in December where gifts may be placed for Fairfield Children’s Home.
If you would like to give in support of any of these causes and are not yet attending in person worship you are invited to give in the same way you share your offering for the church, by sending it to the church or directly to our Co-Treasurer, Rick Caple. If you are sending in support of one of these causes be sure to clearly mark the intention of your gift.
