Operation Christmas Child Packing Party
We are excited as the time is approaching for our 3rd Annual Packing Party at Newington! We hope we will see you there Friday, November 13, 2015. It was an incredible time of fellowship last year as we ate together and then packed the shoeboxes. As we begin planning for this year's event, there are a few things we would like to bring to your attention: > School supply sales will end soon. Just a notebook and some pencils can make such a dif- ference in these kids lives. > Please bring in any empty shoeboxes you might have tucked in your closet. You are wel- come to wrap them with Christmas paper if you like, but we will be glad to have them "just plain." > Due to the generous donation of one of our members, we have a supply of stuffing for vari- ous craft projects. If you have a project you would like to do for the shoeboxes, or would like to coordinate a craft day to put together projects and could use the cotton stuffing, please con- tact Margarita or Tammy. We are grateful for your participation and look forward to seeing you at the Packing Party.

A Challenge of a Different Sort
Need a local hands-on mission project?
Here's an easy one to do!
Scout around your home for any unwanted, never going to use again, have more than I will ever need ace bandages.... A great time to clean out your band-aid drawer by doing the following:
Gather any unwanted ACE wrap bandages to give to your local COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM, so they can practice their first-aide during their upcoming training exercise!
A basket for unwanted ACE wraps will be in the Mission Action Center.
Thank you, Michael Horrell
