SAMARITAN'S PURSE - Christmas Child
The Orchard has the wonderful opportunity to participate in an event that could change the life of a child this holiday season. You can help by bringing in donations that will fit in a shoebox. During the months of September, October, and November we will be asking our church family to bring in items for our shoeboxes. On November 12 we will pack and pray over the shoeboxes as a church. Please help us with our goal of filling 150 shoeboxes this year! Thank you for being a part of this life-changing ministry.
