Central United Methodist Church of Decatur AL

Global Mission

-Kathy Littrell, Mission Chair
  Many of you are already familiar with the Shoe Box ministry. Through these boxes, we share the love of Jesus at Christmas with children who would otherwise receive no gift. The boxes are filled with small items of clothing, crayons, toys, etc. and a coloring book of the Christmas story in Spanish.

You can help them! Central UMC has shoe boxes available for you to fill by purchasing items from the list below. Organize a “packing party” with your class or small group. If you would like to make a monetary donation, that will help with shipping the boxes. The filled boxes are due back in the church by Sunday, September 8. This is the perfect opportunity to get us all in the Christmas spirit! Please consider filling a box today!

Boxes should be marked with ages (2-12) and whether it is for a boy or girl.
