Outreach
Operation Chirstmas Child
God's Blessing to You All! Because of your donations, 90 children will experience God's Love by receiving a Christmas Shoebox this year. Of these boxes, 61 were sponsored in our Adopt-A-Box program, giving our own younger POP children a chance to learn about giving and loving others. When these boys and girls receive their boxes, they are invited to learn about Christ through lessons in a discipleship program. "And do what you learned and received from me. Do what I told you and what you saw me do. And the God who gives peace will be with you." Philippians 4:9

Help Needed for a Crossing Guard Hero-  Bob Belanger, working as a crossing guard, was struck by a car on October 12 when he pushed a pedestrian out of the way of a speeding vehicle.  Continued prayers are needed for him and his family as Bob's condition remains the same. Bruce Roe sends sincere thanks and great gratitude to all the POP members who have lovingly donated to the funds being raised on behalf of the Belanger's. POP raised nearly $1,200 through the gofundme account or directly to the family. We are truly a light and blessing in this world.  For more information click here or visit their Go Fund Me page.
