Operation Christmas Child
Pack and fill a shoebox with gifts which will be given to children around the world. Boxes are available October 25, November 1 and November 8 after each service. If you can’t make it out on a Sunday to pick up a shoebox, they will be available at our church office through the week starting October 26. The shoeboxes will only be collected on November 15.
Don't forget to pray for the child who will receive your shoebox this year.
Here are some ideas to get you started when choosing items to put in your shoebox:
Musical Instrument, Outfit, Shoes, Toys, School Supplies, Non-liquid Hygiene Items (toothbrushes, bar soap, combs, washcloths etc.), Accessories, Crafts, A Personal Note
Please do not include:
Candy; toothpaste; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food; fruit rolls or other fruit snacks; drink mixes (powdered or liquid); liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans.
