OCC a Huge Success!

I just want to thank everyone who brought a shoe box into New Life for Operation Christmas Child (OCC).  Last year we collected 232 boxes. This year we exceeded that with a total of 251 boxes.  That’s 251 children who get to experience God’s love that wouldn’t have otherwise!

This is a great cause which will impact the lives of millions of kids around the world.  While we might never know who receives our shoeboxes, I am sure that God’s providence will place them in the hands of kids who will sense God’s love in a new way because of your gift.

I am always encouraged when we do projects like this at New Life because it reminds me that we are not a church that exists for our own comfort, but one that exists to meet the needs of others in our community and around the world.  To think that we not only do OCC but also Angel Tree, Baby Bundles, and of course our very own Spring and Grab Your Groceries!  On top of that, I know many small groups do their own service projects ranging from singing at local retirement communities to providing meals to local fire stations.

In short, you all rock. Thanks for your continuing generosity!
