CHRISTMAS SHOEBOXES FOR SAMARITAN’S PURSE: The Christmas shoeboxes from Samaritan’s Purse are available at the front door. The donation of $10 per box for shipping expenses can be put in an envelope and placed in the top of the box. More boxes and pamphlets with guidelines are on order. Please indicate age and gender of child for whom you are shopping on the top of the box. Options are ages 2-4, 5-9 or 10-14. If you wish me to complete a box for you (as many folks have done in the past) as it is difficult for you to get out and about, please place $30 in an envelope, marked Shoeboxes, in the offering plate. You will receive a tax receipt at the end of the year. The funds will be forwarded to me to complete a shoebox for you.
National Collection Week is November 16th – 22nd.
Thank you. Margaret Houtby
