OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Sunday the 13th is final day
Operation Christmas Child delivers great joy and the Good News of Jesus Christ to children in need around the world through gift-filled shoeboxes. Each box packed full of quality toys, school supplies, and personal care items becomes a tangible expression of God's immense love for the child. For many, it is their first gift ever! Delivered by our local church partners, shoebox gifts provide an opportunity to present the Gospel to boys and girls in a clear, child-friendly way.
This October, our Youth Group, with the help of the congregation, will be filling these shoeboxes.
1. Select a medium to large "wow" item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal,
2. Then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
3. Don’t forget to also include a personal note and photo—sometimes these are the child's favorite things to receive!
