Operation Christmas Child

Did you know it is less than 3 months until Christmas!
Yes, it is that time again when we have the opportunity to share the love of God and bring joy into the lives of children around the world!

Operation Christmas Child is ready to launch.
Beginning October 7th, empty shoeboxes waiting to be filled with gifts and love will be available to be picked up in the Fellowship Hall. A brochure with a cut-out indicating whether the gifts are for a boy or girl, the age range of the child and general instructions for filling the box will accompany each shoebox. Place the filled shoeboxes on the Fellowship Hall stage by Sunday, November 18th.
 
What can make the shoebox so powerful?
The prayer that accompanies each box. Pray as you shop, pray as you make selections, pray as you pack – pray for the child, and believe that God will direct each shoebox to a particular child.
“Lord, you know what a child’s need is and which child will receive this box. Direct me in making choices that will bless this little one in ways I cannot imagine, because most of all this gift is a means to demonstrate your love.”
