For many years now as a church we’ve been supporting
Operation Christmas Child, which is a project of Samaritan’s Purse. It’s a hands-on way for us to bless children in need across the world
by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies,
and fun gifts.
The way it works is that you take a box (or boxes), follow the instructions in the box when buying your gifts, then bring your filled box back to church by the end of October. The boxes are then collected and distributed to children living in vulnerable situations across the globe.
We have a good supply of shoeboxes available from the foyer, so please take one or more and have fun packing! Alternatively, you are welcome to make a donation and we’ll arrange to purchase pre-packed shoe boxes for you from Samaritan’s Purse.
