Operation Christmas Child
Why we sponsor Operation Christmas Child - In the midst of 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.
Boxes are available for pickup today and next Sunday, November 7th. They must be returned no later than November 14th (along with a $9 donation - cash or check - to cover the cost of shipping). Select whether to give to a boy or girl, and pick an age range (2-4, 5-9, 10-14). Fill the box with new packaged items appropriate for that age range - items such as playing cards, marbles, compact mirrors, play dough, makeup, scissors, colored pencils, small toys. Items to be avoided: anything pressurized (like aerosol cans) or flammable, liquid paint, liquid glue, money, used clothing or toys, anything breakable (like glass), seeds, food, toothpaste, knives (or other weapons), or toy guns.
Thank you for your generosity
