FUMC Ganado participates in Operation Christmans Child each year. OCC is a ministry that collects gift items (many of which are hygiene items) to be placed into a shoebox sized container, and shipped to children around the world who are not aware of what Christmas is. These gifts are used to help introduce the Good News of Jesus to children mostly in underdeveloped regions of the world.
For 2015, instead of asking for gift items to be donated , we are asking for people to sponsor a box (or multiple boxes) for $25 per box. Our volunteers will purchase items in quantity and invite church members to come and assist in the OCC shoe box packing party.
For additional information, contact Angela Adrian or Perri Raz.
The Walk to Emmaus® is a spiritual renewal program intended to strengthen the local church through the development of Christian disciples and leaders. The program's approach seriously considers the model of Christ's servanthood and encourages Christ's disciples to act in ways appropriate of being "a servant to all".
