For the Bargain Hunter, local retailers have reduced prices on “Back to School Supplies”, now would be a good time to stock up on school items for the Shoebox Ministry. Every year our church has been faithful in helping Samaritan’s Purse with their mission. They usually collect school supplies before Christmas. Remember to buy: pencils, pencil erasers, pens, crayons, small notebook, ruler, scissors, pencil sharpeners, etc. A large box will be available in the office to collect supplies. Please consider contributing to this mission, and don’t you love a bargain?
I love you! See you in Church.
