Fill a Christmas Shoebox for a Child
A shoebox isn’t just a shoebox, and these gifts aren’t just gifts. They are a tangible way for God to show His love and care for children all around the world. As of this week, 66 of our 100 Christmas shoeboxes have been take home. Our goal is to have all 100 boxes packed to share Jesus’ love and ours with Children around the world. Start bringing your completed boxes into the Sanctuary on November 1. We will dedicate our gifts to God’s glory on November 13. Call Ramona Bosserman (540) 886-4737 if you have any questions.

Health Care in Haiti

John Reed, Carla Byrd, and Page Hearn from Tinkling went June 9th-16th to Haiti with two pharmacists from West Virginia. Thanks to this team 200 children received six months of cavity prevention, newborns received onesies and blankets, children coming to the clinic will receive vitamins courtesy of the two pharmacists from WV. Many children received much needed Claritin, and approximately 30 individuals were given vision tests. God’s love was everywhere, given by our team and from those with whom they interacted. All the children enjoyed things like glow sticks, soccer balls, and food treats.
