If you are interested in helping, please sign up in the vestibule.

Samaritan’s Purse Processing Center

We have reserved a time to go to the Samaritan’s Purse Processing Center in Charlotte on December 13th & 14th and volunteer to help prepare shoeboxes to be shipped out all over the world. These shoe boxes are more than a simple gift to a needy child. These shoeboxes carry the love of Christ and are followed up by a 13 week class for children to better understand the Gospel and receive Christ as their own personal Lord and Savior! If you can help on either or both dates, please sign up in the Sanctuary Foyer. For those going on both dates, we will spend the night in Charlotte and go to the Billy Graham Library. There will be a small charge depending on cost of hotel and meals. 
Contact Jeff for more info.
