Operation Christmas Child delivers thousands of boxes of gifts to children each year and uses these boxes to share the gospel with communities.
Boxes are now available in the hall after Church. This year to help you I have available ‘Starter Packs.’ These contain exercise books, filled pencil cases, toothbrushes, soap and washer, tennis balls, skipping rope (yes for boys too) and a cuddly toy in a bag. This is a good way to get your box started. The cost is $6 (payable when taking the pack) and is in addition to the $9 donation. You can then add to the shoe box to make it a personal and individual gift with a piece of clothing and something special e.g. toy car, wallet, whistle, marbles (not for 2-4-year old’s), jewellery, purse, stickers, postcards of Australian animals/birds etc. Please return your box any Sunday by the end of the month. If this is a problem, then let me know that your box will be coming later. Many thanks for helping to show God’s unconditional love to a child by giving them a once in a life time special gift.
Please return filled boxes to church by the end of October. If you have any questions or need more information, please see Ellen.
