OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX MINISTRY will be here before you know it – deadline is Sunday, November 12th. On the foyer table are brochures that tell you how to pack a shoebox, along with the tag that goes on the outside designating boy or girl, and a reminder of your $9 cost to aid in shipping. Please remember to leave your shoebox Unwrapped, as our youth will be handling that for you! Please consider being a part of this amazing outreach opportunity.

Deuteronomy 30:10-20 portions:
“The Lord your God will delight in you if you obey his voice and keep the commands and decrees written in this Book of Instruction, and if you turn to the Lord your God with all your heart and soul. This command I am giving you today is not too difficult for you, and it is not beyond your reach. No, the message is very close at hand; it is on your lips and in your heart so that you can obey it. Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep His commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in his ways.
If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you. But if your heart turns away and you refuse to listen, and if you are drawn away to serve and worship other gods, then I warn you now that you will certainly be destroyed. Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying Him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This is the key to your life.”
