Putting Feet to Operation Christmas Child

by Debbie Vanaman

Your feet are needed – actually it’s the shoeboxes that I need.

While you’re doing your summer cleaning or if you purchased any summer shoes and have the empty shoeboxes, please bring them to the church office.

We’re going to have the youth wrap them and we’ll be filling them later in the year.  So clean out those closets and help spread the name of Jesus to children around the world through shoeboxes.

Also hit the back to school sales in August for school supplies.                                                     

Look for more details in the August bulletin.

It’s Never too Early

Even though the temperatures are at last climbing into the 80’s and spring has finally arrived, it’s never too early to start thinking about Operation Christmas Child and shoeboxes.  You can get some great bargains in the summer and just tuck them away until you pack your box.

As always this program goes year-round with distribution of shoeboxes around the world. Please keep this program in your prayers as it continues to reach out and touch young lives with the message of Jesus Christ through the power of a simple shoebox.  By the way, ladies when you buy those summer sandals, don’t throw away the shoebox.  Bring it to church and leave it in the church office.   We will be using it this fall.
