First-Time Parent Dinner

Thursday, October 19, 6:00 p.m. at the home of Clay and Sarah Scott

First Evan ConnectKids would like to invite first-time parents to join us for a special dinner celebrating new parents! We know that this time in life (whether you are expecting, adjusting to life with a new baby, or have recently begun caring for a child) is full of change. We want to come alongside you with resources and support as you begin this journey. We will be covering the following topics: Grace in Parenthood; Finding Balance; The Importance of Community and Marriage. If you are interested in attending, please email Kelsey Berry. If you know of any parents who could benefit from a night of relaxation, good food, and listening to wisdom from other parents in a different season of life, please pass this information along to them as well!


Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child

Pick up boxes starting October 22–November 19; Drop off week is November 13–19

The Samaritan's Purse project Operation Christmas Child collects shoebox gifts—filled with fun toys, school supplies, and hygiene items—to be delivered to children in need around the world to demonstate God's love in a tangible way. For many of these children, the gift-filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received. In 2017, Operation Christmas Child hopes to collect enough shoebox gifts to reach 12 million children in countries like Peru, the Philippines, Rwanda, and Ukraine. Delivered into the hands of children through local churches, every shoebox gift is an opportunity to share about Jesus Christ and God's love.

Shoeboxes will be available for pick up beginning Sunday, October 22. First Evan will be a local drop-off site again this year. Drop off week is November 13–19. Volunteers are needed to help during drop-off week. To volunteer, please contact Kim Bouck. For more information or to fill a shoebox online, click here.
