Operation Christmas Child-- Deadline is November 5, 2017

This is our 14th year of putting together boxes of goodies for Operation Christmas Child! This ministry sends shoe boxes full of Christmas gifts to children around the world. For many of these children, this may be the only Christmas present they ever receive. In addition to the gifts, the plan of salvation is included in each box.

There are three ways you may participate: 1) Make up a shoe box yourself. 2) Donate items to be used in boxes that the church will assemble. 3) Donate money to be used for postage ($9 per box). This year we are collecting Items for students that are ages 10-14.  Items for the boxes should include: school supplies, hygiene items (toothbrushes, soap bars, wash cloths, combs, etc.), small tote bags, calculator, plastic cups, notebooks, handkerchief, batteries, flashlight, scissors, hair bands, pencil sharpeners, and things like these. There are examples of these items posted on the bulletin board by Darla's office. Things NOT to pack are liquids, chocolate, and war toys. 

The deadline to bring your boxes is November 5!!! Hurry! Will you take time to help out a needy child for Christmas?

Over the last 13 years, we have sent over 620 shoeboxes to needy children.

Our goal this year is 150 boxes for 150 changed lives!

Pick up a shoe box from the sanctuary and fill it up for a needy child!

Let's keep sending the good news around the world!!!

If you have any questions, please contact Darla or Maria.
