Operation Christmas Child
OCC: Word of the Week - SERVE
As we reach the ides of October, the Word of the Week is SERVE. By now you’ve heard a lot about this mission and what it stands for. We’ve collected 50 shoeboxes so far… THANK YOU!! But now we need you to serve in this way: toys and items to fill the shoeboxes, hygiene items are in particular need, as well as money to send the boxes.
October is also our annual Stewardship month in the Presbyterian Church. As you consider where God is calling you to give to the church financially, please consider donating to OCC. It costs $7 to ship a shoebox in this program, and every penny helps. In Acts 20:35, Luke writes, “In all this I have given you an example that by such work we must support the weak, remembering the words of the Lord Jesus, for he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” You have received so abundantly, may you be moved to offer of yourself in return. If you would like to donate towards the postage or donate to OCC, please write a check to NWPC and write OCC in the memo line. This can be placed in the offering plate or given to Kay Taylor.
