Special event set

Operation Christmas Child, a project of Samaritan’s Purse, collects shoebox gifts filled with school supplies, hygiene items and fun toys and delivers them to needy children around the world. Anybody can pack a shoebox and make a difference in the life of a child.

National Collection Week is Nov. 18-25. Heritage Baptist Church, 700 Milnwood Road, Farmville, is the central drop off location for this area. You can find more information at: samaritanspurse.org/occ

Don’t miss this opportunity to be blessed by the powerful testimony of shoebox recipient, Elena Nicholson. Elena was eight-years-old living in the former Soviet Union when she received her shoebox gift. Come and meet Elena.
