If you missed the previous post on what Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes are and why we participate, click here to read more about it!

The deadline to turn in shoe boxes in is fast approaching on November 18.  You are welcome to bring them this Wednesday or Sunday, or during the week when the office is open.   Please place the boxes outside the office.  Extra copies of the packing instructions and box labels are available next to the resource center in the office hallway and in the table at the back of the sanctuary.

I hope you remember to pray for the child/children that will receive the shoe box(es) that you have prepared for them. The child will not only be blessed by the gifts you provide, but the greater gift is the exposure to the Gospel of Jesus Christ through the written materials your $9 contribution helps to covers.

I am looking forward to seeing how many shoe boxes (and ultimately how many Gospel opportunities) Gateway will provide for children around the world!
