Remember to be filling your shoe boxes and bring them back to church. The deadline is this Sunday, November 17. Also remember that it costs $9.00 per box for shipping to the various countries around the world. Also, we, as a church, hope to pay $6.00 per box so that the child can attend a series of devotional follow-up classes called “The Greatest journey”. Assuming that we ship 85 boxes, $1275 is needed. Money can be given to Donna Franklin or Ruth Stanley.

A five-week Bible Study, “The Journey: Walking The Road To Bethlehem”, will begin on November 13 and conclude on December 18.
