From the Mission Board:  Time for WOW gifts!  

It can’t be time to start packing a “Mission Opportunity Gift Box”

 (Operation Christmas Child Shoebox)!? Well, it is 4 1/2 months to our collection month!  This year we thought we’d start early and give suggestions for the next few months as to what to buy.  The goal is to have more people pack their own personalized boxes with less of a time crunch. Also, with the cost of everything going up, it might be easier to spread out the spending and look for bargains. You can pick up a shoebox from the Narthex along with a handout regarding Shoebox Gift Suggestions.  We suggest that you start with the WOW gift as that is the most costly and takes up the most space in the box.  We will be giving you the opportunity to pick from our abundance of “filler items” to assist in you packing.  If you’d like an abundance of packing ideas and encouragement go to the Facebook Group SHOEBOX NATION and join! If you have any questions, Please speak with any of the Mission Board members:  Denise Yoreo, Christine Pericolosi, Deb Eddy, Travis Poudin, Ken and Judy Byrne.
