Operation Christmas Child is an outreach of Samaritan’s Purse International. This twenty-five-year-old ministry is one in which Grace Community Church has participated for a number of years. It has been very well received by the congregation. We will be participating again this year with the hope of your enthusiastic support. We are asking you to fill a shoebox with items for children in disadvantaged countries around the world. It would be great if you could pick up and pack at least one box; you can pack more than one box, you are not restricted to only one. The links below will give suggestions on what you might pack in your shoebox. Please remember – no candy or toothpaste.
We will be passing out shoeboxes Sunday, October 28th and for the next four weeks. Please fill them and bring them back to the church by November 18th. We need to transport them to our collection center in Sun City by the 19th. Since we expect a large number of boxes, the earlier we receive them the better.
Sincerely, Ned Davis.
