Nov. 7 Faith Triumphant News

By Donna Kelly

The fifth- through eighth-grade art classes are buying clay for sculptures they will be making in art class. Parents, please send $10 to the school by Wednesday to help defray the cost of the clay.
 
Operation Christmas Child
Students will participate again this year in Operation Christmas Child.  It is the largest event of its kind, providing Christmas gifts to children around the world. Last year we collected over 300 boxes filled with Christmas joy.  We are asking that each family contribute one shoebox for this wonderful cause.  Flyers are available in the office that explain what items to place in the boxes and how they should be wrapped. Please also include $5 in each box with your check made payable to Samaritan’s Purse to cover shipping costs. If you have questions, please call or stop by the office.  Remember — shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child are due by Nov. 17.

Candles on sale
The film class is selling candles for $10 to help raise funds to buy much needed film equipment. Please see a high school member by Nov. 19 to buy some candles.
