Do you have a special gift for knitting, crocheting, or sewing? If so, please attend the Operation Christmas Child craft kick-off meeting on Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. here at the church. We will discuss which special gifts to make for the Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes and pass out yarn and fabric supplies for the different projects. We look forward to getting a nice group of volunteers together to help bless those who will be receiving the boxes. –See you on the 9th!
