Sunday School Christmas Mission Project
For our Christmas Mission Project this year, the Sunday School kids would again like to ask the congregation to help them send “Operation Christmas Child Shoeboxes“, to children around the world, who may not otherwise receive a Christmas gift. Operation Christmas Child is sponsored through Samaritan’s Purse International Relief. Everything you need to pack a shoebox will be set up on a table in the Fellowship Halls at the Pocahontas and Havelock Centers. All you need to do is take a box, a brochure (be sure to read ALL the details… very helpful), a prayer bookmark (so you can be praying for the child who will receive your box), and a sticker (because stickers are Fun!!) Have fun shopping for and packing your box!!
We are starting today and will collect boxes until Thursday, November 19th.
Bring your filled and prayed-over boxes to the church office along with $9.00 for shipping. From there, the boxes will be brought to a drop off center, travel to a distribution center, and sent on their way to their recipients. When the boxes are received, the Gospel of Jesus is shared with the children and a discipleship program is offered to further along their relationship with Him. These children will be so grateful to you for your thoughtful gifts and for helping introduce them to Jesus, their new BEST FRIEND!!
Please prayerfully consider filling a box (or more than one if you like). Thank you so much for helping our kids at HOPE spread the hope we have in Jesus this Christmas season!
PS: if by chance we run out of printed shoeboxes, feel free to Christmas wrap a sturdy shoebox you may already have or purchase a plastic shoebox.
