Operation Christmas Child
Operation Christmas Child | It's that time of year when we gear up for our annual Children's Ministry project! We will be collecting items for children ages 2-14 that we can pack in a shoebox and send to poverty stricken areas around the globe. On back to school month, let's collect school supplies such as markers, crayons, colored pencils, pencil sharpeners, small notebooks, stickers, or activity books. Help us share the good news of Jesus with each box we send! Donations can be dropped of each Sunday at the Children's Check in station.
Thursdays 6:30 - 7:05 AM Join us at the Stony Brook Boulevard Hy-Vee dinning area to pray for the church and other prayer requests God has placed on your heart.
