Make Christmas special for a child somewhere around the world by sending them a shoebox filled with gifts and Good News!

  • Empty wrapped shoeboxes and brochures will be available for pick up in the church parking lot after both services on Sundays October 4 and 11.  There will also be times available during the week which will be published in the Monday email update from the church office.  
  • The brochure in your box will give you directions, ideas, and prohibited items as you fill your box.  It will have labels indicating boy/girl and age grouping to put on the lid of your box. It also includes a postage paid envelope for your $9.00 shipping donation if you want to mail your shipping donation rather than putting it in the shoebox.  
  • Filled boxes need to be returned by Sunday, Nov. 1.  Lynne Joehnk will be in the church parking lot on Sundays, Oct. 25th and Nov. 1 to collect the filled boxes.
  • A second way to participate being offered this year is to go to the Operation Christmas Child website and for a $25.00 donation you can “Build a Box”.  You select the items you want to go into your box from their items and they will fill the box for you.  Or you may choose to have OCC build your box for you.  Details for doing this are available at this link.
