Year-Round Shopping

Year-Round shopping for Operation Christmas Child shoe box gifts helps provide supplies for the church packing parties. It’s also a great way to collect items for your personal shoe box gifts.

January’s Items of the Month are hats, gloves and scarves. These are great to include in any box no matter the climate of where it will land. Gloves are used as protection when taking pans out of open fires. Even in warm areas, it sometimes gets very cold at night so hats are needed and welcome.

Pick up a calendar of the suggested items for each month of the year. Leave donations in the boxes located in the church foyers. Financial donations should be placed in an offering envelope marked OCC gifts or OCC shipping. For more information, contact Michelle Williams, 740-215-7519.

Packing Party

We are very pleased to announce our annual Packing Party.

As with everything else, some adjustments had to be made to address COVID-19. We will be asking participants to sign up in advance for specific times so the room does not become overcrowded. Tables will be set up to allow for social distance. Sign up sheets are in the church foyers. Contact Michelle Williams with any questions, 740-215-7519.

Craft Group

We will not be meeting for the remainder of 2020 with hope of being able to gather again next year. Meanwhile, projects you complete at home for shoe box gifts are welcome. Place them in the boxes in the church foyers.
