Amazingly, it’s already here! Time to pack the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, that is. You can join us this Saturday (November 13th) at 10:00 AM for our annual packing party. This year we have a goal of 600 boxes and if we get a good crowd of people, we’ll have that done in no time, and no doubt exceed the goal.
Everything is provided, as you’ll see in the pictures below. All you need to do is come and grab a pre-labeled box and fill it up. You can add some personal touches, notes, etc., and then we’ll pray over the mountain of shoeboxes and send them off. Every shoebox will carry the gospel with it, and only eternity will reveal the impact.
Will you join us?
Of course, the packing party is only one way to participate in this wonderful ministry. You can also pack your own shoeboxes (we’ll provide as many empty boxes as you need) and bring them back during collection week (November 15th – 22nd). You can also give financially to help with the shipping cost of $9 per box. And of course above all, you can join us as we pray over these gifts and seek God’s direction of each box to its recipient.
BTW – If you join us for the packing party on Saturday, we’ll have pizza to sustain you!
