OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
West Grove UMC is going to be participating once again in Operation Christmas Child (OCC). Both Missions and the Youth will be working together to collect boxes from our congregation. Boxes will be distributed for our personal donations.

Don’t forget to pick up your Operation Christmas Child shoebox located on the table in the lobby. Instructions and ideas for filling the boxes are on the table as well.
