Boxes can usually be picked up late October and are due back to the church in mid November.
Operation child is an easy way to share God’s love with children around the world! Just a reminder that hard candy is permitted and unfortunately hot chocolate packets and chocolate are not. These boxes are delivered by barge, by boat, by elephant and even camels!
The boxes are located in the hallway across from the church office. Don’t forget to include $7 in an envelope to help with the delivery of these very special boxes. While you are at is, the children love receiving family pictures with a little note….if you include your address you never know one day you may receive a letter from a child faraway!
Operation Christmas Child is about sharing the gift of God’s son Jesus Christ with the world. You can share Christ with needy children in Afghanistan, Sudan, or another troubled country by taking part in Operation Christmas Child, a missions project of Samaritan s Purse. They also receive Christian literature in their own language inside their shoebox. What a great way to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with the children and their parents! Please make it a part of your Christmas tradition to send a shoebox and spread the message of Jesus Christ.
If you have any questions about Operation Christmas Child, contact Linda Drew or Shari Dillon. Thank you for supporting this wonderful mission!
