The Items for September are: boy or girl socks


For many years, our church has participated with Operation Christmas Child in packing shoeboxes. 

We have always promoted individuals/families packing their own shoeboxes and returning them to the church for collection.


Many churches/groups actually work on packing the shoeboxes all year by bringing shoebox items during the entire year.  Then, have “packing parties” to put the collected items in the boxes.  So, we are offering this alternative for our shoebox collection and packing in 2021!


Collection bins will be placed in the Welcome Center, 1st floor of East Building, in the hallway behind Sanctuary, and in the Fellowship Center.


Collected items will be stored until October. Churchwide packing party will be Sunday, November 7th.

Items requested:

Cracker jacks

2 liter soft drinks

Large marshmallows

Party supplies – plastic tablecloths, silverware (plastic), plates, cups, party hats and party décor for birthday and all holidays
