Children all over the world need the hope of Christ, and a simple shoebox packed full of new gifts can show a child in an underserved country the hope and love found in Jesus.

Boxes, and packing information, are available in Fellowship Hall Oct 30, Nov 6 and 13. Return filled boxes the week of Nov 14-21.
