St. Luke’s Preschool, along with St. Luke’s UMC, is participating in Operation  Christmas Child:  Each class (one box/class) will have a box to fill (shoe box size).  Each box is for a boy or girl and a designated age group.   We invite you and your child to donate ONE item to the box (keep in mind that items need to fit in a shoe box!).  The boxes will be placed at each classroom or each pick up/drop off door.  Each box will also have a QR code to follow!  The teachers will follow the box with the children, but if you would also like to follow it with your child, feel free to scan the code yourself.  We have put a list of gift suggestions in your child’s cubby and you can find them at this link as well.  It might be meaningful to take your child shopping, even just the dollar store, to pick out something😊.  Gifts are due Wednesday, 11/16.  Pastor Lisa and the children will send their prayers and blessings in the boxes during November chapel!
