The Amazing Journey of a Shoebox Gift Begins with You and Results in Evangelism, Discipleship, and Multiplication.
This year we are looking to increase our giving toward the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Ministry. We will be posting and sending monthly reminders throughout the year along with gift ideas to purchase in advance for the shoeboxes that will be packed at the end of October.
We are encouraging our congregation, and any one else who would like to join us throughout the year, to pick up a gift or two that corresponds with the monthly themed gift ideas. This is an easy way to spread the cost of participating in Operation Christmas Child throughout the entire year and has a great potential of increasing the total amount of gifts packed in shoeboxes at the end of the year.
You may drop of your donated gifts before or after our Sunday service any time after 3:30. We meet at the Twin Oaks Auditorium – 15860 Fish Point Rd. Prior Lake, MN. You may contact us anytie to make other arrangments to drop of your donations as well.
In the hands of local churches, every gift-filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship—transforming the lives of children and their families around the world through the Good News of Jesus Christ!
August’s Item is school supplies. As you are shopping for your own children grab a few more for these precious kiddos. Crayons, pencils, markers, notebooks, pencil pouches, erasers are all great choices.
Along with collecting gifts throughout the year we are also looking to raise $1000.00 dollars to send along with all of the boxes we pack to cover the shipping cost of each Shoebox. Please follow the “give now” link to help support our efforts in raising these funds. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
