Student Ministry Fall Retreat
When: November 10-12
Where: Livingston, TX
Contact: Michael (firstname.lastname@example.org)
All students, 7th-12th grade, are invited to a relaxing and fun weekend to celebrate a very important birthday. Martin Luther will turn 534 years old on November 10th. We’ll spend some time playing games, cooking out, praying, and learning from this giant of the reformed tradition.
Operation Christmas Child Packing Party
When: November 12, after worship
Contact: Christine (email@example.com)
The Children’s Ministry Team invites you to partner with them as they get ready to pack shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child. Please consider sponsoring one or more boxes. Our goal is to send 50 boxes! The cost is $30/box and includes the items as well as the shipping. Simply write a check with OCC in the memo line and place it in the offering plate or go online and select OCC when making your payment.
Then mark your calendar to join us for the Packing Party on November 12th after worship in the gallery! Pack a box before you head home for lunch. We will have light refreshments. Bring a family photo if you’d like to include it in a personalized card. We will have a card making station at our packing party.
Pray for this outreach project – that many would be impacted for God’s glory as they receive our gifts and join an OCC sponsored Bible study club. Pray that we would reach our goal of 50 boxes—that means we need to raise $1500 or hear from 50 families that they will sponsor one gift box!
