God's Love Grows Here!

World

 
Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes
We support Samaritan’s Purse by filling shoeboxes with gifts for children.  The boxes, which also contain a Christian message, are distributed around the world.  For more information, go to www.samaritanspurse.org/occ/.
 
Gleaning for the World
“Gleaning For The World seeks to provide urgently needed and life-saving support to communities in critical need throughout the world through the responsible application of a powerful concept that we call “gleaning.” By gleaning we mean that, from a host of generous corporate donors, we collect surplus medical and other essential supplies which we then, are able to distribute where humanitarian help is needed worldwide.”  We support GFTW by going to their facility on a regular basis to sort through donations or assist as needed.  We have active groups from the   Methodist Men and  Methodist Women that support this ministry.  For more information, go to www.gftw.org.
  
Christmas Cards for the Troops
Each Christmas season, people are encouraged to prepare Christmas cards that are sent to our military troops overseas.  This is an important ministry to let our soldiers know that we love them, appreciate them and are praying for them.
