It’s Shoebox Tiime!

it’s time to fill a shoe box or two for Operation Christmas Child!  What an awesome opportunity to provide gifts for a child that might not get a gift otherwise.  The best part is that they will also hear about Jesus when they receive their gift.  If you are attending services, you can pick up pre-printed boxes in the hallway.  If you aren’t ready to attend in person services, and would like pre-printed boxes and labels, contact Marilyn Gladden at 865-414-2314 and make arrangements to pick them up. We also have a limited supply of dresses made by our sewing ministry to be placed in the shoe boxes.  Filled shoe boxes should be returned to the church by November 15.    I’ve included a video for you.  I haven’t tried this before, so I hope that it works.  Click on the link to hopefully view.  operation-christmas-child-overview-2020-promo
