Operation Christmas Child wraps up 2017

Mission Outreach is thrilled to announce that we blessed 126 boxes on Sunday, November 12. We are truly grateful for all the support in collecting items and for attending the Packing Party on November 11.

While this is not as many as last year we did see several members of the community who are not associated with our church attend the packing party and meet our congregation for the first time.  Please help us pack more boxes by thinking of Operation Christmas Child throughout the year.  Any small toys, pencils, soaps etc can be collected and dropped off in the Mission Outreach area throughout the year.

For the first time we also blessed Foster Children overnight bags.  These bags contain a pair of pajamas, toothbrush and toothpaste, and a coloring book and a brand new box of Crayola crayons.  Each child received a stuffed animal and we’re trying to get a small blanket into each bag.  We will continue to build kits through out the year as the needs of foster children never fully goes away.

Thank you for supporting Mission Outreach and we look forward to doing more in 2018!
