It may be the middle of July, but Christmas will be here shortly—particularly as the Missions Team makes plans to work with Agape Christmas boxes for children in Armenia this year. We need to have all of the boxes at MERCI in Goldsboro by October 1 in order to ship them in a timely manner to Armenia. Most of the boxes will be given out to children of refugee families who have found a home in Nagorno-Karabakh (an area claimed by Armenia).
In addition, we will be shipping any Welcome Home Kits that are donated. For information about the Agape Christmas boxes and the Welcome Home Kits: https://nccumc.org/outreach/project-agape/. There will be churches that act as drop off places that will be announced soon. For further information, contact Rev. Bill Haddock at firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell phone at 910.262.3831.
