Events and Announcements
It’s Operation Christmas Child Time! Our opportunity to share the message of God’s Love to children who have never received a Christmas gift or have not heard about Jesus Christ.
In past years, the Chapel community would come together to pack shoeboxes for OCC. Once again, due to Covid-19, we are unable to host a “packing party.” Please consider picking up a box from the Narthex or church office, filling it, and then returning it to the office by Friday, November 12. We have provided a list of suggested gift ideas.
You may also choose to “build a box” online. OCC now has an option on its website that allows you to order a filled shoebox for $25 per box. You may select the items to fill the box yourself or an OCC volunteer will build your box for you. Go to www.samaritanspurse.org/occ.
Keeping in mind that we mark World Communion Sunday on October 3, which shines a light on our shared goals in Christ around the global, a worldwide mission maybe carried to our local communities as well.
This year, we will also join with Misíon Peniel in its..
Christmas Joy Bags, Family Style.
Misíon Peniel is asking the churches of the Peace River Presbytery to fill gift bags with holiday treats and candy and/or gift cards, in $10 increments, to either Dollar General or Family Dollar stores. These are the two main stores available to shop in Immokalee.
Misíon Peniel will provide each church with a supply of gift bags.
On December 17, the gift bags will be distributed the families of the farmworkers. Misíon Peniel is solely support by the churches that make up the Peace River Presbytery.
The families of Immokalee have been impacted greatly by the COVID pandemic and we want to share the Joy of the Living God with them and their families.
