First Church will host a mission trip to help process boxes at the Operation Christmas Child Processing Center in Columbia, MD on Friday, Nov. 30.

Through the Operation Christmas Child ministry, the public is invited to fill one or more shoe-sized boxes with toiletries (comb, hairbrush, toothbrush, washcloth, etc.), toys and games, school supplies, and a Wow! item. The boxes are shipped to children in dire need in more than 100 countries around the world.

The group will depart from First Church at 7 a.m., and arrive home that evening. Participants should pack a lunch, snacks and drinks, and wear comfortable shoes. There is no cost to attend, but participants should bring money for dinner.

Act fast if you are interested! We can only take up to nine people, on a first come first served basis. To sign up or for more information, call or e-mail the church office at 717.766.4611 or
