First Christian Church is so excited to be participating in Operation Christmas Child again this year! Operation Christmas Child, uses gift-filled shoeboxes to demonstrate God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world. Their shoebox is the first gift many children have ever received! The treasures and personal letters inside communicate that someone cares for them and give them an opportunity to experience the love of God. Feel free to pick up empty boxes available in the Narthex. You also have the option of using your own “shoebox” as well! If you cannot complete a box yourself, you can bring items that go in shoebox and drop them off in the collection bin in the Narthex. Click here for a great shopping list to use while you prepare your box.

Hobby Lobby is partnering with Samaritan’s Purse for 2015 to provide an easy and idea filled shopping trip for Operation Christmas Child. Look for the Operation Christmas child logo near great shoebox items.  Click here for a 40% off coupon you can use for your Operation Christmas Child shopping!
