Operation Christmas Child 2023

Christmas is about sharing the gift of Jesus Christ with the world, and shoeboxes filled with toys can bring cheer to needy children everywhere.
How to pack a shoebox for Operation Christmas Child
A. Get a shoebox. (You can pick up shoeboxes in the church foyer.) 
B. Fill the box with small toys, hygiene products, school supplies, clothes, etc. – anything you think a child would enjoy and need.
Do not include war or war-themed toys or objects; candy or chocolates or food; toothpaste; liquids or liquid-filled items; or used clothes or used toys
C. Decide whether your box is for a girl or boy, and indicate the age category on the Operation Christmas Child lable. Include $10 (the suggested donation) per box for shipping costs.
D. Bring you box to church. We are collecting boxes every Sunday, now until November 19, 2023.
