Operation Christmas Child

"Every shoebox offers an opportunity to share the Good News of Jesus christ

with a hurting child."  (Franklin Graham, President-Samaritan's Purse)


Take advantage of those August Back-to-School Sales!  It’s time to collect items to fill shoeboxes that will be sent to children in need around the world.  A collection box is in the Narthex, or if you wish, you can fill a shoebox yourself and bring it to the church.  BOXES WILL BE COLLECTED THE FIRST SUNDAY OF NOVEMBER.  Gift suggestions are: 

  • Toys that children will immediately embrace such as dolls, toy trucks, stuffed animals, kazoos, harmonicas, yo-yos, jump ropes, balls
  • School Supplies:  pens, pencils and sharpeners, crayons or markers, writing pads or paper, coloring and picture books
  • Hygiene Items:  toothbrush, mild bar soap (in a plastic bag), comb, washcloth
  • Accessories:  t-shirts, socks, ball caps, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewelry
