Mission Breakfast Featuring Operation Christmas Child Speakers

"More Than A Shoe Box"

St. John Lutheran Church at 7214 South Cass Avenue in Darien, IL will host a Mission Breakfast on Saturday, April 21, 2018 from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The theme will be “Sharing Christ Throughout the World” and will focus on living our lives in active mission service and Gospel outreach wherever God has planted us. Attendees will be treated to a Continental breakfast after which Serena Butler, the Upper Midwest Regional Manager for Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse, will give a presentation titled “More Than a Shoe Box.” Specifically, she will speak on her trip last year to Lomé, Togo in West Africa where she took part in five OCC outreach events. In sharing her experiences and that of shoe box recipients, she will illustrate how God works through OCC to answer prayers and to make an eternal difference in the lives of children, families, and church planters. A freewill offering will be received to support OCC’s 12-lesson Bible-based discipleship program, The Greatest Journey, which expands upon the native language Gospel tract included in each shoe box. Those wishing to attend this morning of fellowship, encouragement, and renewal should register online or call the church office no later than April 16.
