Hey everyone! :) Come join us in fellowship and packing gift boxes for Operation Christmas Child this season with Crucible Dance Ministry and Ross Road Community Church!

We have 200 boxes to fill. Just a reminder…
You decide how many boxes you want to fill and what genders to pack for.
Bring enough stuff for each box and feel free to bring a few extra items to pack in other boxes that need some extra stuff.
Bring $7 for each box to ship it. (Cash or cheque)
Feel free to bring a plate of goodies, but not necessary.

We’re going to eat, laugh, drink some hot cocoa, make a few cards to put in the boxes, pack some boxes and have fun with each other as one big packing party family between Ross Road and Crucible! Yet, all are welcome!

Just RSVP so we can know how many to plan for. To let us know you’re coming, visit our FB event here.  If you don’t use FB, send an email to Pastor Merri Ellen: merriellen(AT)
