OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX COLLECTION
The answer to the question everyone asks this time of year is,
"Do you know where our shoeboxes are going?" Just last week
we learned that our gifts will be shipped to Belize, India,
Trinidad and Tobago, Tanzania, and Uganda. If you want to
follow your box you can donate shipping at samaritanspurse.org
through Follow Your Box. You can then print a label with a
barcode to put on your box. You have one more Sunday to add
your shoebox gift to our church collection at the front of the
sanctuary. We are again serving as a relay center to
collect gifts from our area. Mon - Fri., November 17-21 hours
are 3 - 5:30 pm; Sat. Nov. 22, 9-11 am; Sun. Nov. 23, 12-2 pm;

WHAT AM I WORTH?
Over the centuries people have believed that their
worth is determined by what they accomplish, what
they own, or another external standard. Who I am
depends on my own efforts to accomplish, possess or
control. But what does God think? What has he told
us that establishes what our true value is to him and
each other?
1. What value does God place on people?
