Good News. Great Joy.
Operation Christmas Child is a worldwide effort to bless children all around the globe with a simple gift: shoeboxes filled with items that many of them have never had before! From children to seniors, people pack shoebox gifts each year to bless children in need. We are participating in this wonderful outreach again this year, beginning October 1 – November 18.
The steps are simple: pack a shoebox and drop it off at the church during office hours or before/after services by November 18.
How to Pack a Shoebox
Find a Shoebox
Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.
Girl or Boy?
Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.
Fill with Gifts
Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies. PLEASE NOTE: NO TOOTHPASTE OR CANDY IS ALLOWED.
Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
