As the Church, the body of Christ, we are Christ’s hands, his feet, his voice, his physical presence in the world. We invite you to be the Church with us as we engage in Operation Maine Memorial, a ministry of showing Christ’s love for our community in a tangible way. Joining in is really quite simple. Pick up a shoebox in Main Street and head down to the local Dollar Store or Five Below. Using the suggestions on the bookmark found inside your box, spend about $30 and fill it up. Once you have filled your box, simply bring it back (before December 13!) and place it where you picked it up. Then begin to pray for God to use your box as a sign of his presence and love, and pray that the child who will receive your box will respond in faith to the God who loves her.
This year, 456 students will receive shoeboxes! That means, 456 children and their families will experience God’s love in a physical way as we seek to be the Church.
