Operation Christmas Child

You will soon see the familiar red and green Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes in the main foyer. Please pick up your box or boxes and enjoy the tradition of filling and packing a gift for a child. We encourage you to make it a family affair by letting your children help you shop and pack the box. A brochure of how to pack your box and an envelope for your $9 shipping cost will be in the box.

Have you had good intentions of packing a shoebox to share the love of Jesus with children of severe poverty, famine, war or disasters in the past? Too often that collection deadline sneaks up on us. If you would like to bring a few items at a time to church we will do the packing for you. Now is a great time to
buy crayons, pencils, sidewalk chalk, child size sunglasses and flip flops. You can bring a toy (stuffed animal, cars or trucks, dolls, etc). Hygiene and clothing items are also needed (soap, washcloths, socks, t-shirt). We have a large box in the foyer to place items in.

The cost of shipping the boxes this year is $9 / box. We would love to have some willing donors help cover the cost of shipping for the boxes we pack for you. Your donation will give a child the opportunity to hear the Gospel. You can make out a check to amaritan’s Purse. We will forward the donation on with the boxes. Thank you for your help in this ministry!
