The Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Kickoff is here…well for our fabulous Shoebox Sisters at CCBC, they actually never quit. But for those “seasonal” participants of OCC (like me!) the official start date is OCTOBER 11TH!
The famous red and green boxes will be available in the Fellowship Hall at church along with helpful packing information (dos and don’ts) and promotional items to get you started. All you need to get started in one convenient spot.
As any Shoebox veteran will tell you, the most important thing you will pack is PRAYER…after that it’s all about BOY OR GIRL? AGE 2-4 YRS, 5-9 YRS, OR 10-14 YRS.
National Collection Week is November 16th – 23rd. To participate at Candies Creek, deliver your filled box to the church for a big PRAYER SEND OFF on November 15th! Please don’t forget to include a check for $7 for each box you are sending. AND we will have an opportunity for a special SHOEBOX OFFERING to help pay postage on all the additional boxes the Shoebox Ladies have been packing. They have purchased items for close to 450 boxes!!!! By faith we trust the Lord will provide through his people the money to send these boxes on to kids around the world.
Samaritan’s Purse Shoebox Ministry is one of the ways we can remind our children of the precious gift of Jesus. And in response to that gift, we can be a part of a global effort to share the Gospel with children around the world. “GOOD NEWS. GREAT JOY.”
Be watching for promo videos and testimonies during October leading to CCBC Collection date of November 15th. Also, be praying about how your family can offer money to help get these additional boxes in the hands of children.
Also visit http://samaritanspurse.org to receive even more current information or to TRACK YOUR BOX…Samaritan’s Box will send you e mail confirmation of where you box lands if you purchase your label directly from their website. Just donate $7 and print off your barcode label, pray and wait on delivery! It’s incredible.
