About The Event
Operation Christmas Child Is Here!
Sunday, October 15 through Sunday, November 12
Since 1993 Operation Christmas Child shoebox gifts have been distributed by Samaritan’s Purse to over 200 million children word wide. Reaching the far corners of the globe, each of the shoeboxes are accompanied by the Good News of Jesus Christ.
All the ways YOU can support Operation Christmas Child this year:
1. FILL a shoe box! A
2. BRING in-kind items and let us do the work for you! Our youth will build boxes from the collected items.
3. DONATE funds for us to fill a box for you. Your donation of $35.00 ($25 for the items/$10 shipping) will create a magical box for a child.
4. SUPPORT shipping and printing costs with a $10 donation. But it’s SO much more than shipping! This $10 helps with the printing and inclusion of “The Greatest Gift” booklet and “The Greatest Journey” follow-up discipleship program that each child receives. A copy of “The Greatest Gift” in the child’s native language is included in each box
at the final point of distribution.
5. BRING your completed box to church anytime BUT no later than Sunday, November 12.
6. ASK questions!
7. BUY raffle tickets for our fabulous gift basket. Yes, back by popular demand! All proceeds will help support shipping costs. Cash or checks made to Peace with Raffle memo please!
8. GET READY – Beginning January 2024, Operation Christmas Child will become a year-round ministry here at Peace Lutheran. Please pray for this ministry as we look for ways to expand and partner in new ways within our congregation.
9. PRAY, PRAY, PRAY for the children across the globe that will receive our boxes. That the love of Jesus Christ will reach them through each item in their box and that their lives will be transformed through His love.
As you can see, there is much to be done in a short amount of time. Thank you SO MUCH for your commitment to this ministry, your love for spreading the gospel, your heart for children across the globe and for making Operation Christmas Child possible at PLC!
