This year, FBC, Farmington is taking a greater role in Operation Christmas Child. On November 16, we will receive our church’s shoeboxes in the morning worship service. This benevolent ministry has grown significantly since its beginning.
We are also serving as a collection center. Churches and groups from the area will bring their shoe boxes to our church during that week, November 17-24, from 9:00 A.M to 3:00 P.M. each day. We will then count and box the boxes to load onto the truck for shipping to the national centers.
Will you consider assisting that week? We will need help counting, moving, and packing the boxes and loading the larger boxes onto the semi. However, if you are unable to lift, there is also paperwork and counting which does not require lifting.
Sharon Rich and Cindy Myers are coordinating and leading this effort for our church. Gene and Barb Wilfong can also answer questions you might have.
We have realized what an impact these shoe boxes have in the lives of the children and families who receive them. This year will require a bit more effort from our church, but consider the effect of your work.
Please contact Sharon or Cindy soon indicating your desire and willingness to help so we will be ready to receive and to give the blessings.
