Operation Christmas Child

Our Awana children on Wednesday nights have set a goal to fill 125 shoeboxes! If you would like to donate items to help them reach this goal, drop the items off at the church office, inside the Worship Center Lobby, or in the Children's Ministry areas. We will also accept monetary donations to help cover the $9 per shoebox it takes to ship these wonderful gifts. To see a list of shoebox items or to track your shoebox click here!
