Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes

(OCC Website)

National Collection Week for shoebox gifts is mid-November. As in the past, colorful pre-printed cardboard boxes are available in fellowship hall & church vestibule. Please take as many as you like for yourself, friends, and neighbors– and have fun filling them to bless needy children around the world. Brochures with gift suggestions, boy/girl labels, and other guidelines accompany each box. As in the past, an optional $9 donation per shoebox gift is suggested to cover shipping and other ministry expenses. Checks should be made payable to Operation Christmas Child and placed inside the shoebox just under the lid. If you cannot include that donation, don’t let that keep you from packing a box. For those who are unable to shop but want to be a vital part of this ministry, checks in any amount made payable to Operation Christmas Child can be given to us for delivery along with the boxes—or you can mail them directly to the following address:

Samaritan’s Purse, P. O. Box 3000, Boone, NC 28607.

We need to have all boxes in hand by Sunday, Nov. 11 in order to deliver them during National Collection Week. Thanks for your participation & prayerful support.

All Aboard the Christmas Express
Children’s Christmas Program
Sunday Morning December 16th at 11:00 am

All aboard! Every Christmas Eve the passengers on the Christmas Express make the journey to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania to celebrate the birth of Christ with a grand pageant. The question is, who will God choose to ride the train on this special night, and what kind of adventure will unfold? Come along as the jolly, joyful train conductor welcomes Mrs. Davis and her students, along with a hard-working waitress named Jenny. The mood is high until Mr. Theodore Higginsworth, III — a businessman who doesn’t believe in “fairy tales” – boards the train. Only when the Christmas Express comes to a sudden stop and an unexpected stranger comes on board does Mr. Higginsworth realize that the story of Christmas isn’t only a story.

Created by Celeste Clydesdale, arranged by David T. Clydesdale, and script written by Celeste Clydesdale and Susie Williams, The Christmas Express invites you to join in on a joyful journey as God orchestrates a night of miracles to help us all remember the true meaning of Christmas… Jesus!

Come, join us December 16th as our children present this wonderful program that is sure to bring joy to your heart!
