Operation Christmas Child🎁

IT’S TIME!  Send in your donations for our shoeboxes. October is our collection month to bring in items for our “Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes!” Boxes will be packed on November 5th.  See the link below for ideas of things to send in and for things to avoid  (liquids, food, toothpaste).  https://www.samaritanspurse.org/operation-christmas-child/what-goes-in-my-shoebox-suggestions/ 

Last year we packed almost 50 boxes and our goal is to meet that goal again and maybe even surpass it!  If you are interested in helping to financially support this project (shipping: $9 per box), please call the Elementary office for more information.

Bible Project – Middle and High School – A Fun Friday this WEEK
Genesee Christian School raises funds each year to pay for the printing of John and Romans through our Bearing Precious Seed Bible project.  These scriptures are then sent to missionaries around the world, free of charge, for FREE distribution.   Our goal this year is $7,000 to produce 50,000 copies of John and Romans.  One of the ways we will be raising funds this year is through Fun Fridays!  Fun Fridays entail parent volunteers providing various snacks on the second and fourth Fridays of each month.  Throughout the school day, students can purchase these snacks and therefore help to print Bibles.  

**The Fun Friday snack for this Friday, October 22, will be cider and donuts.  Please click on the link below if you are willing to provide cider or donuts (and bring them to the high school by 8:00am on 10/22).   Also, remember to send money with your student this Friday so they can enjoy the treat!**
