UMCOR Shoebox Ministry

The mission and ministries of the church have not stopped!  It is time for us to gather items to fill shoeboxes to be sent around the world to help spread the love of God to children in the developing world.  Last year, our shoeboxes went to Costa Rico, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama.  We are relying on you to help us collect items to include in these boxes.  All items are due September 27.  You may drop them off at the front door of the church or in the Narthex on Sundays beginning September 6th.  Below is a list of items that we will be collecting for the boxes: 

  • Hot Wheels Cars
