Operation Christmas Child
Time to begin thinking about shoeboxes!
Operation Christmas Child - UPDATED INFO - Operation Christmas Child - As we look forward to Christmas, our nation and our world are still reeling from COVID-19. Many are desperately looking for comfort and peace. We are thankful that God has given us a simple way to help - by packing shoebox gifts for Operation Christmas Child, sending them overseas in the name of Jesus, and handing them out to millions of children through our global network.
Shoebox gifts can go "to the ends of the earth." When we pack shoeboxes with school supplies, toys, and other gifts, we can help prepare the way for children to receive God's greatest gift, Jesus Christ.
National Collection Week will be November 16 - 23. If you are uncomfortable shopping for gifts, you may pick up a Shoebox and items to fill it, simply by coming to the church Sanctuary or The Faith Center. You may also go to samaritanspurse.org/occ to fill a Shoebox online. Please remember to include $9 per box for shipping. There will be sign-up sheets available at both services next week, with the hours for Collection posted.
And we will have a Packing Party at 10 am on November 11th, in the Faith Center. Questions - contact Linda Nelson.
