Operation Christmas Child 2016 Title.jpg

We are excited to announce that we are partnering with Samaritan's Purse for Operation Christmas Child to help reach 10 million children with the Gospel. This is a fun & easy opportunity for the whole family to get involved with Reaching People & Building Lives.

Simply pick up a shoebox in the lobby starting October 21st. You'll then bring back your filled box and $9 for shipping by November 12th.

How to Pack a Shoebox:

  1. Pick up a shoebox in the lobby starting the weekend of October 21st & 22nd.
  2. Girl or Boy? You decide!
  3. Age category: 2-4, 5-9, or 10-14
  4. Fill with Gifts: Select a medium to large "wow" item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
  5. Pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
  6. Drop off your filled shoebox + $9 for shipping at the designated locations in the lobby by November 12th. 

Along with each box, each child will also receive a discipleship course and Bible in their own language! This year, our goal is to fill 1,200 boxes to reach 1,200 kids.
