This next week is the official week
“Operation Christmas Child”
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to demonstrate God's love in a tangible way to needy children around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
How?!? You ask…
Use an empty shoe box (standard size, please) or a small plastic container. You can wrap the box (lid separately), but wrapping is not required. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift.
Fill the box with a variety of gifts that will bring delight to a child. Small toys, school supplies, toothpaste games, candy ect.
Please donate $7 or more for each shoe box you prepare to help cover shipping and other project costs. Place a rubber band around each closed shoe box and drop off at the Collection Center nearest you during our collection week November 15 - 22.
Many of the children who receive Christmas Boxes have never had a Christmas gift.

Please don’t just look at this and move on…make it a family or group event. Do it today! You will not be sorry! The kids love packing them and your heart will be filled with blessings.
Tis the season…how will you spend it? What will your children remember most?
