Food Drive Celebration/Operation Christmas Child Packing Party

posted Oct 25, 2019, 8:35 AM by St. Paul UMC Church   [ updated ]
Sunday November 17th - 5-8pm in the Family Life Center. 5-6pm free pizza dinner and we will learn about the St. Paul Food Pantry, the St. Paul Community Garden, as well as hear the results of the October Food Drive and celebrate everyone's giving, and if someone is kissing a cow, that would be done in this first hour as well.

From 6-8pm would be a church wide fellowship service project of an Operation Christmas Child Packing Party. The first part of this event would be educating the church on Operation Christmas child through various videos and speakers. The next part of the event would be the actual packing. This would mean that all of the shoebox supplies will be set up in an assembly line fashion, and all of the boxes would already be provided at this event, and folks would choose the age and gender of the child they would pack a shoebox for, and they would go through the assembly line with their shoebox packing list, and literally pack that shoebox right then and there. After a shoebox is packed, the person would then pray over the box and the child who would receive it.

We are in need of donations for shipping the shoeboxes - $9 each.
