    Please join us as we pack meals for Haiti on Saturday, October 26th, at 10:00 AM at the Memorial United Methodist Church.  This will be a combined mission project with the Grace Church. Meal Packing for Haiti is a ministry through Lifeline Christian Mission.  A lunch will be served following the meal-packing.  If you wish, you may bring either a soup, salad, or dessert.  The goal this year is to pack 7,500 meals.  Each meal costs approximately 24 cents which includes all ingredients, bags, boxes and shipping to Haiti. If you would like to make a donation towards this worthy cause, please write your check to the church and designate "Meal Packing Event" on it.  All are invited to participate!
MEAL PACKING EVENT FOR HAITI ON OCTOBER 26TH
    Shoeboxes filled with gifts are being collected for Operation Christmas Child.  You can impact a child’s life with a simple shoebox gift.  Fill a shoebox with school supplies, toys, necessity items and a note of encouragement for a child overseas suffering due to disaster, disease, war, terrorism, famine or poverty.  Remember that toothpaste and candy are no longer accepted in the shoeboxes due to customs regulations.  There are cardboard boxes available in the church social room.  There are also envelopes available to place in your box.  These envelopes show a list of suggested items that can be included.

    Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, which is headed by the Rev. Dr. Franklin Graham.  More than 168 million gift-filled shoeboxes have been distributed to boys and girls in more than 160 countries and territories since 1993.  Samaritan’s Purse works with ministry partners and local churches to deliver the gifts and share the Good News of Jesus Christ.

    Please bring your shoebox gift to the church by Sunday, November 17th.  Don’t forget to include $9.00 per box to cover shipping costs.  For more information, go to https://www.samaritanspurse.org
