On behalf of the Evangelism Committee, you are invited to our second annual Community Christmas Carol Fest, happening tonight (Sunday, December 16, 2018) at Providence URC in Strathroy (447 Second Street, Strathroy, ON.)
UPDATE: Thank you for your participation in packing shoe boxes this year. A total of 89 Boxes were packed and delivered to our local collection centre.
The deacons are partnering with The Samaritan’s Purse this fall and partaking with Operation Christmas Child.
Look for shoeboxes being available at the back table of Providence URC on Thanksgiving weekend – Sunday October 7th and 8th. All families (especially those with children) are encouraged to take an empty box home and fill it for a girl or boy (aged between 2-4, 5- 9 & 10-14), filling the box with age and gender appropriate gifts along with essentials such as school supplies (pens, pencils, paper, notebooks, etc), non-liquid hygiene items (toothbrushes, combs, bar soap, etc.) and personal accessories (socks, hats, watches, hair clips, etc.)
The boxes must be ready by November 18, at which time the deacons will collect any filled boxes brought to Strathroy URC.
