- Operation Christmas Child The Ladies Night Club group at First UMC is seeking your help. We are excited to participate in Operation Christmas Child and want to invite our church family to consider getting involved as well. The Operation Christmas Child project (sponsored by Samaritan's Purse - International Relief), partners with churches worldwide to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Jesus Christ. After receiving shoebox gifts, children are discipled through a Bible Study course: The Greatest Journey, where they learn to become faithful followers of Christ, and share their faith with others. Children that received the boxes fall into the following age groups: 2-4 years old;   5-9 years old; 10-14 years old. What we need: - empty shoe boxes- gifts to fill the boxes, such as school supplies like pencils, markers, pens, colors, color books, paper, solar calculators, picture books, or notebooks that will fit in the shoebox, non-liquid hygiene items, toothbrushes, bar soap, washcloths, combs, small toys that children will immediately embrace such as toy cars, yo-yos, jump ropes, balls, toys that light up and make noise, a doll, soccer ball with pump, stuffed animal, accessories such as a t-shirt, socks, hats, sunglasses, hair clips, jewelry, watches, flashlights with extra batteries, etc.  - cash donations to pay for the postage. Cost - $7 each box we send. On Thursday, November 19th, our ladies group will assemble the boxes for the boys and girls. Friday, November, 20, the boxes will be delivered to Calvary Baptist Church in Yankton, which will get them to Minneapolis. There, each box will get a Bible added. There will be a box located in the lobby marked "OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD" so you can drop off your donations. Cash gifts may be made out to the church. Mark OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD in the memo line. The deadline for returning items is Wednesday, November 18th. Prayerfully consider how you could help with this project.
