Do you love children? Do you want to be a part of a vital ministry in which children all around the world are hearing that Jesus loves them and died for them? Would you like to be a missionary without having to learn a foreign language or travel thousands of miles from home for years at a time? Then Operation Christmas Child Townsend Filler Factory is for you; no skills required, just a deep love for the Lord, a willing heart and time. Join us here in the church fellowship hall at our workshops starting up again for 2012. Questions? Please call the church (302-378-1511), Barb Lemon, LaRene Aaron, Mickey Hughes, Linda Short, Missi Davis or Doris Delong.
Do you find joy and fulfillment in spending time in with the Lord in prayer for others? We are gathering a new Operation Christmas Child Prayer Team and are looking for people who would commit at least one hour of prayer a week and can be done privately or with others. This would be not only for our local workshops and church emphasis but for the OCC organization, the shoebox sending countries, the National Leadership team and the children receiving the shoe box gifts as well as the follow up discipleship program.
