Operation Christmas Child

OCC 1The season is here for packing shoe boxes for children around the world. There is a display set up in the foyer with shoe boxes, paper work on how to pack a shoe box, “wow” items to include and other information you may need.

Collection week is November 18-25.

RCC is a Central Drop Off Location  Center again this year. This means that area churches, businesses, and people will bring their shoe boxes here during Collection Week. Then Sunday November 24 will be packing day!  We will have a semitrailer in our parking lot and after church we will be packing individual shoe boxes into shipping cartons and loading them in the truck. Everyone is invited, all ages can help! See Ronna Bemis for questions or to sign up to help on packing day.
