We will once again be participating in Operation Christmas Child. This project is run by Samaritan’s Purse and sends boxes to children in need around the world. These boxes are filled with toys, hygiene items, school supplies and more. Also included will be a Gospel booklet called “The Greatest Gift” to help the recipients learn about God’s Greatest Gift, His Son, Jesus Christ. The children also have an opportunity to enroll in a 12 week follow-up discipleship program, The Greatest Journey. You can use a regular shoebox or a plastic shoebox. Please enclose a check for $9 for each box you turn in to help with the shipping. There are examples of the boxes on the table out front as well as some materials you may take for more information. The boxes must be in no later than November 12. For more information on what to pack, please check out their website at samaritanspurse.org/occ or talk to Denice Jefferson.
