Many thanks to the members of Copeland Baptist Church for bringing items this past year for the Operation Christmas Child shoe-boxes. WMU will be operation_christmas_childcollecting items to go into the shoe boxes for 2021.  The drop off box is located inside the front entry way. 
Each month, throughout the year, will have specific item that will be needed to fill each shoe box at the end of the year.  And this list will be displayed above the drop off box, as to make everyone aware of what can be given to Operation CHRISTmas Child.   
It is time to begin gathering items for the Operation Christmas Shoeboxes next year. The JULY items to bring are toys, flashlights (with extra batteries) small tools, sewing kits or misc. Place these items in the box in the church foyer. We sent 61 boxes this past year and the goal for next year is 75. We will need everyone’s help.
UPDATE: We have met our goal of 75 boxes, actually we packed 77 boxes for the 2020 Operation Christmas Child.  GOOD JOB COPELAND BAPTIST CHURCH!
Please pray for God’s presence with each of these boxes and also for the children who will receive them.
