This ministry is in full swing at Out Of The Box Worship Center and there are shoe boxes everywhere! Please take a shoebox and fill it with small items! The power of this simple gift will change the live of the child that receives it. OCC has a huge goal this year of surpassing 100 million shoe box gifts distributed since 1993 and you can be part of this ministry. There is information in the lobby on how to fill a shoebox. Suggested items are small toys, stuff animals, jump ropes, balls, school supplies, wash cloths, soap, toothbrush & toothpaste.
Shoe boxes are due back on Sunday, 11/18 and on this day, we will bless the shoe boxes during worship. Following worship services, there will be a packing party and a covered dish meal at the Fulcher St location in the Fellowship Hall. Everyone is invited to come, eat lunch and join in on the fun an celebration.
The NICA missionary team is having a bake sale on Sunday, 11/18 and is asking for donations of baked goods to be sold during the OCC lunch.
Our church is taking groups to serve in Boone on 11/26 and in Charlotte on 12/3 at the processing centers. If you have any questions, please contact Patti Holderfield at 276-236-7812 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
