November Mom's Night Out and Play Date Details!

Playdate: Operation Christmas Child
Wednesday, November 16th from 10-noon in the DBC main building
RSVP to megan@lillybee.com

Come join us in packing boxes for Operation Christmas Child, an organization which delivers Christmas gifts and the Gospel to children worldwide. 

1.  Get a shoebox - an actual shoebox or a plastic box of similar size. I will also have plenty of Samaritan's Purse boxes for you to use. So if you just want to come with a bag of toys, that is ok too!
2.  Include a "wow" toy - like a doll or stuffed animal, etc
3.  Fill with gifts - such as hygiene items or school supplies
4.  Pray for the children receiving these boxes
5.  Bring a $7 donation to cover shipping (check or cash) OR donate online and follow your box to its destination. If you donate online, you will print out a label and bring it along. If you write a check (preferred), make it out to "Samaritans Purse". The label/check will be placed inside of each box. 
6.  Come meet us in the main building of DBC and pack your boxes! We will have snacks for the kiddos and coloring papers/crayons for kids to color a picture to send. There will also be a storytime for the kiddos along with singing and dancing provided by Montgomery County Library. 
7.  We will deliver your box for you during the national collection week. Hope to see you there!!!! :)

October Play Date and MNO Details

October is here, which means it must officially be time for pumpkin patches and chilly nights with bonfires and S'mores, right?  Lucky YOU, we have some great events planned for this month!  See details below.
WHEN: October 12th at 10am
WHERE: Butler's Orchard - 22222 Davis Mill Road, Germantown
WHAT: Butler's Orchard Pumpkin Harvest Days - Includes:
  • Exploring the learning stations, jumping in the hayloft barn, swooshing down the giant slides, visiting barnyard animals, picking a pumpkin in the pumpkin patch, and exploring the straw maze. 
  • Each person picks one head-sized pumpkin and also receives a crisp Butler’s Apple and a copy of the “Pumpkin Post” – a facts and fun worksheet that can be used in the classroom or at home to reinforce material learned on the farm. (Helpful hint: bring a heavy duty bag to carry your pumpkins!)
COST: Price is $7.25 per person (over a year old).  If you want your younger child(ren) to have a pumpkin, you must pay for that child as well. PLEASE BRING CASH!
RSVP: email derwoodmops@gmail.com with the number of PAYING people that will be coming.  You are welcome to just show up but an RSVP will be very helpful to Katherine who is organizing this play date, as she has to give Butler's Orchard a number for our group and pay ahead! 

WHEN: October 17th at 7:30pm
WHERE: Kory Glossop's house
WHAT: A bonfire with drinks and S'mores along with some great fellowship! :) 

Hope to see you at our events!
