Operation Christmas Child & WFUMC Foster Giving Tree
The Fall brings cooler weather and the time of year for counting our blessings. Part of this season is discerning how we might bring blessings to others both here and afar as a church family following His teachings. The Winder Boys and Girls Club has been our mission focus for October, and we’re now embarking on Operation Christmas Child and the Foster Giving Tree, which will carry us through the end of November.
Operation Christmas Child… 100 plastic boxes have been purchased for members to pick up, fill, and return to the church on or before Sunday, November 19th for the dedication. Be on the lookout for these in the Fellowship Hall and outside the Sanctuary near the Mission Bins. Some are located outside the church office, too. Operation Christmas Child is in conjunction with Samaritan’s Purse, and your gifts to this ministry will travel to children around the world. If you’d like to participate in Operation Christmas Child, but are unsure exactly what to put into the box or have difficulty shopping, then we have volunteers who’ll shop and fill a box for you. You can make a check out to WFUMC for $20.00 and put “Operation Christmas Child” in the memo section; and your box will be filled and dedicated on November 19th, too!
“WFUMC’s Foster Giving Tree” will be up on Wed. November 1st, and ready for our church family to select a Barrow county foster child or children to sponsor for Christmas this year. The Foster Giving Tree’s Coordinator is Victoria Patrick and her contact info is: email@example.com or 770-
We are adopting/sponsoring sibling groups this year. Since these are sibling groups we ask that the maximum spent per child be $100 and the minimum $50. All gifts will need to be returned (unwrapped) and clearly labeled to the church office by Sunday, November 29th. Please place your gifts in black trash bags. When selecting a child or children, there will be numbered envelopes on the tree with general information about the child and the wish list enclosed. Please complete the sign-
