Good news, great joy
"Good news, great joy" ... this is what Operation Christmas Child is all about! Our church is excited to once again partner with Samaritan's Purse to send shoeboxes filled with gifts to boys and girls around the world. But there's something very special about these shoeboxes: they also contain the greatest gift, which is the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
We have been receiving filled boxes and donated items for more than a month, and this Sunday, November 11, after the morning church service we will gather in the youth room for a shoebox packing party. Adults and kids of all ages are invited to work together to fill these shoeboxes with gifts and love, and at the end of our time together we will pray over the boxes and ask God to direct them to children who need to receive a demonstration of His love and the message of salvation.
