We are packing shoeboxes again this year for Operation Christmas Child (OCC), a ministry of Samaritan’s Purse. GVBC will be distributing FREE cardboard and plastic shoeboxes (due to a generous donor to Samaritan’s Purse this year!) Pick them up on the first three Sundays in November, and drop off your gift-filled shoebox on Thanksgiving Sunday. Or build an online shoebox for $25! For more details, visit
Our Harvest Festival drive-up will be from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on October 31st. Families of children 5th grade and under are welcome to come in costume and receive a treat bag!
We would greatly appreciate donations of unopened bags of candy from our GVBC family. (Preferably with no nuts) You can bring candy to church on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday from 10am to 5pm. The last day of collection is October 25th.
If you have any questions, please contact Susan Wakuta at firstname.lastname@example.org.
