Operation Christmas Child Fellowship Dinner



UMW & Operation Christmas Child Fellowship Dinner

Join us for a family friendly dinner on Friday, Nov. 18, at 6 pm. We will be hearing from Dale Goodrich, a pilot with Samaritan’s Purse who delivers shoe boxes internationally.

We will also be packing shoe boxes into shipping cartons – it’s fun and easy to learn. Please bring a tape gun, if you have one.

Help us receive packed shoe boxes from the community through November 21st.

Operation Christmas Child





Pender’s Children’s Council & our American Heritage Girls are collecting toys for Operation Christmas Child. Bags for items will be distributed to our Sunday School classes.

Assistance is needed with shipping the boxes abroad which costs $7.00 per box. Samaritan’s Purse works with local churches & ministry partners to deliver the gifts and share the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ.

Please make checks payable to Pender United Methodist Church and state in the Memo line “Operation Christmas Child ” and place in the offering plate/basket by Sunday, November 10th.

If you have any questions, please contact Cherie Kronimus.
