Operation Christmas Child

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD SHOEBOX INFORMATION

2021

Our goal this year is 17 shoeboxes per age group of girls and boys. Our age groups are 2-4, 5-9, and 10-14.

If we reach our goal, we will have a total of 102 shoeboxes. The shoeboxes will be used to share the love of Jesus with children around the world. Please PRAY each day for the shoebox recipients, their families, and their communities. Also, please be in prayer over each step as we prepare each box to be sent out.

Beginning in late October and throughout early November we will pack the shoeboxes and prepare them for shipment. We have been blessed with official Operation Christmas Child plastic boxes to fill this year. The dimensions of the boxes are 10.5 x 5.5 x 4. Please keep this in mind when making your donations. A monetary donation of $9.00 per box helps with the cost of shipping.

Candy, toothpaste, gum, used or damaged items, war-related items such as toy guns or military figures, chocolate or food, seeds, fruit rolls or other fruit snacks, drink mixes (powdered or liquid), liquids or lotions, medications or vitamins, breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers, aerosol cans. No knives of any kind, including Swiss-army knives. NOTHING CAMOUFLAGE.

 

THANK YOU!

We are thankful that our church body is mission minded and we thank you in advance for your help in reaching our goal for 2021. Please keep in mind that this may be the only time these children receive a physical gift, and we want the gifts to last. We pray that these physical gifts will lead to the ultimate spiritual gift of these children coming to know Christ as their personal Lord & Savior.
