Gearing Up for a Great Shoebox Season

We’re gearing up for a great shoebox season for 2022. Here at FBC we’ve been a part of Operation Christmas Child for over 20 years and the blessings that children around the world have received is awesome. Imagine the joy that a child experiences opening a box made especially for them that contains something as simple as a toothbrush or a bar of soap not to mention the toys, crayons and coloring books that are also inside. The school supplies help many of them who may not have been able to go to school because of not having these supplies.

The program that accompanies the shoebox is called The Greatest Journey and it tells them all about Jesus and His Love for them and gives them an opportunity to give their heart to Jesus at the end of the series. That’s a second blessing that they can pass onto their families and villages and help spread the name of Jesus around the world. That’s the power of a simple shoebox

The months of July and August typically are great months to shop for school supplies so that’s what we will be collecting. We need pencils, pens, crayons, coloring books, markers, colored pencils, erasers, small note pads and pencil sharpeners. These items are a vital part of each and every shoebox. Your donations would be greatly appreciated and can be left in the box in the Welcome Center.
