Olive Branch Ministries Christmas Boxes for Appalachia Program
*This Christmas box may be the only Christmas gift that many of these children receive.*

SUGGESTED ITEMS FOR EACH BOX:

ALL BOXES -small sizes are okay
Soap or body wash in a zip lock bag, shampoo, conditioner in a zip lock bag, toothbrush, toothpaste, brush/comb, washcloth,age appropriate school supplies (pens, pencils, etc.), hat, gloves

BOXES FOR MCCREARY COUNTY – ABOVE ITEMS PLUS:
High School (100+ boxes needed) : $10 gift card to Walmart, Family Dollar or Dollar General, deodorant, and other items you would like to include: perfume, Axe body spray, wallet, jewelry, nail polish, socks, etc.

Kindergarten – 6th Grade (1,000 boxes needed): $5 - $10 gift card to Walmart, Family Dollar or Dollar General, other items you would like to include: markers, age appropriate toys, nail polish, lip gloss, jewelry, hair bows, books, card games, Legos, etc.

BOXES FOR OTHER COUNTIES (500 boxes needed) – Above items plus gift cards, age appropriate toys or other items.  There are a variety of ages and genders in these counties that we minister to.  Please identify what age/gender that the box is for.  Specifics can be given if you would like to prepare boxes for these specific needs.

I request gift cards in place of a clothing item.  Our children vary in sizes and do not always wear the size that is the standard age size and this way they can get something that they can pick out for themselves.  Some have inquired about other gift cards. McCreary County has an Arby’s, McDonalds, Subway and KFC.  If you would prefer me to shop for you, please make contributions payable to: Olive Branch Ministries and denote Christmas Boxes in the memo line or online through CBF here.

  • Please no violent or war related items

  • If you would like to send candy, please do not put in the boxes.  Candy absorbs the soap taste and smell making it inedible.  Please send in a separate bag and I will make sure it gets distributed to the children.

Thank you and blessings!

Pastor's Paragraph 11/15/18

Pastor's Paragraph—November 15, 2018
This coming Sunday, November 18th, is Thanksgiving Sunday at Calvary. It is also Commitment Day, a day when we have the opportunity to demonstrate our gratitude to the Lord. Specifically, we are asking each member  of our Calvary family to demonstrate his/her gratitude to God in the following ways:

  1. By being present. Our presence at Bible study and worship is a tangible way of demonstrating that God is certainly worthy of our worship. So plan to be present (and invite a friend to come with you). Those members who cannot attend are encouraged to listen to our morning worship service as it is broadcast over the radio (WVLK/590) or to live stream our service by going to the church website.

  2. By making a confidential commitment to the 2019 church budget.  Commitment cards have been mailed to our church members. Commitment cards will also be available in the sanctuary as well as in the church office. There will be a designated time during the morning worship services this Sunday when the commitment cards will be received. If you cannot be present this Sunday, please mail or bring your commitment card to the church office.

  3. By giving a generous offering to support the Lord’s work through our church in 2018. We are currently behind in our budget giving. Giving to the church budget provides the financial resources which are needed for CBC to carry out our God-given mission. No one church member (or even several church members) can provide enough money in order for our 2018 budget of $2, 169,812 to be met. However, if every CBC member will practice good stewardship and “do his or her part” then more than enough financial resources for the work of our church will be given.

  4. By praying daily for our church during this period of transition and (after February 28th) during the upcoming interim period. Pray that all Calvary members will “step up” during this upcoming season of change so that even during the interim period (so that especially during the interim period) CBC will do her best in being the church that God will continue calling us to be.

I look forward to seeing you for Thanksgiving/Commitment Day worship this Sunday morning and at the Family Thanksgiving Feast this coming Sunday night!
 
 
Blessings,
Bob
