Operation: Christmas Child - Due November 18

Every year, we partner with Samaritan's Purse in their annual Operation Christmas Child project. This project sends shoeboxes full of small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies to needy children throughout the world. Here's how you can get involved: Pick up a shoebox from the church, fill it with the requested items and return it by November 18 along with $9 for shipping.


Cocoa & Carols - December 2

Every December we have a special night of singing with hot cocoa that we creatively call "Cocoa & Carols." Join us for a joyous singing and fellowship that will warm your heart and your belly. The night will include many of your favorite Christmas carols and hear a dramatic reading of the birth of Christ narrative.


Ladies Christmas Party - December 4

The annual Ladies Christmas Party is December 4 at 6:00 pm and will be at Debbie Eldridge's home. Please bring a side dish to share and a $15 gift for a fun exchange. More than anything though, we want the pleasure of your company. This is a wonderful time for the women of the church to get together and enjoy an evening of festive fun.


Blood Drive - December 9

Give blood. Save lives. About every eight weeks or so, we hold a blood drive with the Red Cross. Our next blood drive is Sunday, December 9 from 1:00 to 7:00 pm. All types of blood are needed. Walk-ins are welcome, but it's best to reserve a timeslot. Follow the link to reserve a timeslot. Reserve a donation time.


Gospel Mission - December 30

Join the team of volunteers serving meals to the homeless at the Gospel Mission in Dayton. This is a great way to be a blessing to those in need and be blessed in return. The group will leave after morning worship to enjoy lunch together before arriving at the Gospel Mission at 2:00 pm. We are usually done by 5:30 pm. Learn more.
