Operation Christmas Child Flying ShoeboxA representative from Operation Christmas Child’s ‘Full Circle’ program will be speaking here at The Ripley Church, Sunday, September 15th, at 2:00 P.M. The speaker, named Alex, received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox when he was an orphan in Rwanda. He has a wonderful story to tell of how God used the gift box to change his life. This special event is being sponsored by Samaritan’s Purse and is open to the public. There will be refreshments served afterwards. You won’t want to miss out on this event!

The Missions Committee will need help filling the volunteer positions necessary for the event. If you would like to help, please stop by the Information Center and sign up. While there, pick up a flyer to give to a friend.
