Every year the Alexander UMC congregation members come together to pack shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child, sponsored by Samaritan's Purse. To increase the number of boxes leaving our small church, congregation members have started collecting all year long. The purpose of the boxes is to bless children in need around the world and to help spread the word and love of Christ.
Boxes are usually stuffed full with wonderful gifts including small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. Not only that, but each box is prayed over multiple times so it would be the perfect gift for whichever boy or girl receives it.
National Collection Week is the 3rd week in November.
Contact Wendy Burkhardt to find out how you can get more involved.
