The Power of a Simple Gift

Shoebox Success!
During the month of October we worked on items for Operation Christmas Child and the past two Tuesday meetings we packed our shoeboxes. The Grand Total for our group is 22! We will be delivering to the collection center here at Foxworthy Baptist Church this coming Tues., November 15 during our meeting. We are also helping provide a meal for the workers, thanks to everyone who signed up! One thing that you could provide is some fun snacks or water bottles for the worker to munch on during the day while they are waiting for boxes to arrive.

"Knit Together" Study
Please keep up with your Bible Study of "Knit Together" this past week we didn't get to our study, let not make that a habit. Getting into God's word together is a blessing when we are faithful! This coming Tuesday we will review Chapters 3 and 4, Created for Risk and Created for Success. What risks are you willing to take? Did you write your mission's statement? What have you read to so far in our study that has got you to thinking about your purpose?

"Baby and Kids It's Cold Outside", December and January Project Focus
Our next project focus is coming up and I will have details soon. So stayed tuned!

Ladies Christmas Tea
Also, this year we are helping host the Ladies Christmas Party with Joan Wescott. The date is Tuesday December 13 at 7:00. Joan has come up with a lovely theme: "The Sweet Fragrance of Christmas." We will have tea, and ladies are being asked to bring their favorite Christmas Tea Time treat, and a tea cup. The tea cups are going to a fun and exciting part of the program! Joan with need help with gathering items for the party, set-up, craft, and clean-up. Included with be a time for secret sister's to reveal whom they have been participating in this ministry.

November 29th Meeting
I will be out of town this week to volunteer at the Processing Center for Operation Christmas Child in Santa Ana, and need a couple of ladies to help open the doors and facilitate the Bible Study. Let me know at our next meeting if a couple of you could help out while I am out that night.
