  • Operation Christmas Child shoebox ministry – National Collection Week is November 16th through the 23rdYES!  Operation Christmas Child will be collecting shoeboxes, as usual, this year.  Because of Covid-19,  we will have to make some adjustments to the process, but we will be here collecting and packing boxes.   We will not be having a packing party this year, but we will be packing boxes throughout the week of collection.  So, to all of you who prefer to donate whatever we need… reach out to me because we will still need you.  To all of you who pack boxes… I will have boxes available for pick up beginning this week but remember any regular size shoebox will do.  Start shopping now for school supplies, making use of clearance sales, making crafts, and taking advantage of free-to-store shipping and curb-side pickup.  I will be looking for some of you, especially high schoolers and young adults, as you are in a low-risk group, to help during collection week beginning in October.  Please be in prayer about what God would have you do with this because we will need you. I or anyone on the team (Sue Carlino or Larry Marshall) would be happy to answer any questions you may have to the best of our knowledge.  You can call me, email me, or drop a note in the OCC mailbox at church.  Thank you,  Katherine Johnson, OCC Southeastern Area Team (603-200-0465 ~  lilpie1@comcast.net)

Sermon Discussion
After listening to this week’s sermon, consider these questions (either personally, with your family around the lunch table, or your community group) and let them spur you on this week in your walk with God:
  1. What are the characteristics of the ‘grace of giving’ demonstrated by the Macedonian churches?  (II Corinthians 8: 1ff)  Which characteristic/s do you most struggle to demonstrate
  2. Read II Corinthians 8: 13-15.  These verses have been used as evidence that the Bible supports the concept of socialism.  Discuss how socialism is different from what is described here.
  3. Read the promise recorded in II Corinthians 9: 11.  In what way should we who ‘excel in the grace of giving’ expect to be rich?
