We’re Nearly There!
We’re nearing the end of our collections for the shoeboxes for 2015 – just 2 months to go! In Septmber it’s time to bring any knitted items such as hats, gloves and scarves and an advance notice, October is the time for that special treat for all our little friends – sweets! If there is a ‘sell by’ date on the sweets it must be at least March 2016 and sadly we can’t send any chocolates or sweets containing chocolate.
Already we have quite a lot of empty shoeboxes stored away but we will be needing more so if you can bring any we would be grateful.
Now another advance notice! Plans are well under way for the Family Fun and Fayre day in the Village Hall on October 10th from 10.30am ‘til 3.30pm. Any money raised from the event will be going to Samaritan’s Purse to pay for the transport of the boxes filled by CCC. Any surplus will be used to cover the cost of enabling children to go on the Greatest Journey Bible course. The other reason the Bookstall is organising this is as another outreach occasion, an opportunity to let our neighbours know what goes on at CCC and to show them we love them because Jesus first loved us.
I am planning to have a table in the lobby of the hall displaying the various activities of the Church so if you are involved in ANY group anc can produce just a sall eye catching item to ‘advertise’ that group here’s your opportunity! Get in touch with me if you would like to do this, and if you are able to help in any way on the day even for a short time – there’s plenty to be done!
Once again a big THANK YOU and God bless you..
