Dear Grace Lutheran Members:  I would like to thank you for the contributions of shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child.  We collected a total of forty-three boxes for the needy children this year.  Thank you for making a joyful Christmas for kids again!  I would also like to ask you to prayerfully consider taking over leading the collection process for next year, as I am stepping down from this role.  If you have any questions about what is required of the person leading the collection process, you may contact me or Sandy in the church office.  Thank you for your willingness to serve God's children!  ~God's Blessings, Shirley DeWeese
