Share Christ's Love this Christmas!
What makes Christmas great? It isn’t the presents, it is love. We experience this love in time spent with families, in giving gifts, and most importantly in the greatest gift of all- Jesus! As you prepare for Christmas this year we hope that you can find ways to share love with others. One way we invite you to do this is by giving an Operation Christmas Child Shoe box.
When you pack an Operation Christmas Child shoe box you are sharing hope and love with children around the world. Each box is filled with a combination of fun and useful items that are intended to bring smiles to children’s faces and let them know that they are loved.
Our church will be collecting packed boxes in the sanctuary and invite you to pack a box and share God’s love this Christmas season. Be sure to return your packed box by Sunday, November 19.
Please turn in your packed boxes by Sunday, November 19.

Shipping & Payment
The final step after packing your shoebox is payment and shipping details. You can even track your box to see where it goes! Each box costs $10 to cover the shipping and handling costs.
There are two ways to pay.
- Pay online using a credit card (recommended)
- Pay by check by using the envelope in the pamphlet inside your shoebox.
