Operation Christmas Child Shoebox News
As we enter October, we are ramping up for our annual shoebox collection. You will find empty shoe boxes in the overflow area to take home to fill. Inside each box is a folder which has a girl / boy tag on it, as well as suggestions for items to include in your box. Once filled, simply cut the appropriate label out, tape it on top of the box, and be sure to mark the [x] on the age group that you packed for. Note that there is an envelope to include the $9.00 shipping charges for each box. Finally, return your filled shoeboxes anytime up to November 21st, when we will pray over them in worship before sending them on their way. Each child that receives a shoebox will also receive a book called “The Greatest Journey” , which tells the story of Jesus, and His love for them. They are then invited to participate in a 6-week program to learn more about Jesus, and are given an opportunity to accept Him as their personal Savior. What A Gift ! The red OCC tub will remain in the entryway for you to deposit your donations in. Some of the items we are still in need of are toys for both boys and girls, washcloths, bars of soap, and toothbrushes. Thank you for your support for this important mission to children.
