Operation Christmas Child 

Bring a child the good news of Jesus wrapped in a gift of love. HVBC goal: 300 children blessed

HVBC is starting up early in collecting shoe boxes. Pick up boxes in the back of the Sanctuary and fill them up! Please return your packed boxes to church no later than Sunday, November 11, 2018.

What goes in my box? Start with a quality "wow" item such as a stuffed animal, soccer ball with pump, or clothing outfit that will capture the child's attention the instant he or she opens the box.  Do not include candy; toothpaste; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; seeds; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans. Please refer to the list for a more complete list of gift suggestions.

 We are also currently collecting donations of individual items and money for a church wide box packing party on October 28th between services.  All are invited.

See Jeffrey & Malu Bing at the OCC table in back of the Sanctuary for more information.
