The Journey of a Shoe Box begins at Faith Memorial Church in Benner Fellowship Hall beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 19. That’s when months of hard work and diligent shopping will culminate in a huge packing party where we have a God-sized goal of filling 1,500 shoe boxes! Some of you have come faithfully each year, but if you’re not familiar with a packing party, you’re urged to come and experience the joy of working alongside others filling a simple box with basic supplies, hygiene items and toys that will make a huge impact in the life of a child. Most importantly, these boxes will open doors to church leaders in their country to share the Gospel of Jesus to these same children, who we pray will receive the BEST Gift – Jesus Christ as their Savior!
Muffins with Missionaries is an opportunity for face to face time with those sharing the Good News in other cultures.
On October 20, 2019, we will welcome Nathan and Cydil Waggoner who are working in Albania. All Adult and Teens Sunday school classes will meet in Benner Fellowship Hall for muffins, coffee and conversation. Nathan and Cydil will present a brief picture of what they do in Albania as we wrap up our time together. We hope you’ll join us!

Is it possible to fly anywhere in the world for just $9?
It is if you’re a shoe-box gift being transported
by Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.
When you Buy A Flight for one or several shoe-box gifts,
it helps cover the cost of shipping the boxes from the church’s packing party.
Place your gift in the offering marked “Buy A Flight.”
