Spreading Love and the Hope of Christ this Christmas

Published on: November 20, 2018

Our K-8 students brought in over 300 boxes and $412 in donations for Operation Christmas Child this year. Our community worked alongside Grant Memorial Church staff and volunteers to bring in and collect shoeboxes filled with gifts for children worldwide. Each year our school participates through building shoeboxes filled with gifts as a classroom initiative and encouraging families to bring in their own gift-filled boxes. Thank you to our K-8 families for supporting this important outreach. It is our prayer that many children will hear the message of Jesus Christ and be blessed this Christmas.
