Our next shoebox Collection is going on now until Nov. 18
YOU are Making a Difference!
The regional coordinator for Mifflin/Clinton/Centre counties called to thank all of you and EFRree for the 60+ Operation Christmas Child boxes that we put together/sent in November 2017.
In 2016, we were a part of three counties that sent a total of 16,212 boxes to children for Operation Christmas Child!
In 2015 our church sent 54 Operation Christmas Child boxes and the three counties sent a total of 14,872 boxes!
Praise the Lord for his blessings!
Operation Christmas Child
Our church has been participating in packing and sending the good news of Jesus along side gifts to children all over the world for many years. If you are not familiar with this ministry please visit the Operation Christmas Child website to learn more!
Watch for sales year-round and purchase items we can use to pack boxes in the fall!
This year they are requesting no toothpaste or candy be included in the boxes.
In 2016 some of our boxes arrived in Malawi, Africa. Which is a total distance of 7,993.43 mi
How Can YOU Get Involved?
Pack a shoebox and deliver it along with the $9 shipping fee to the church. (On Sunday mornings in November we will have boxes available for you to take, pack and return.)
Donate gifts for the children in our congregation to pack into shoeboxes. (Drop off box in the multi-purpose room on Sunday mornings) - balls, dolls, small toys, socks, flip flops, other shoes, shirts, jumpropes, harmonica, marbles, sunglasses, solar calculator, flashlight, personal hygeine items, crayons, pencils are all great gift ideas
Donate money towards shippping costs for shoeboxes packed by the children in our congregation.
Pray for the children that will be receiving the boxes.
