Children’s ministry update
Thank you for your support in 2017 with McGill Baptist’s Children’s Missions Operation Christmas Child. With your monthly donations we packed 100 boxes to send overseas. This past month you donated $692.35 “postage” at our post office that we will use to pay the shipping for next year’s boxes. We are updating our donation calendars to share with you. January will again be a bar of soap (NO IVORY) and a wash cloth. Save the date of November 4, 2018 for the packing party. Check the table outside the Media Center for Christmas cards.
Offering Envelopes are available in your Sunday School class or down the office suite hallway. Please let Patsy know if you have a question.
