Operation Christmas Child

Where has the summer gone!  In a few weeks (if not already) children will be gathering their school supplies and choosing clothes for the new school year.  What a perfect time to do some shopping for your Operation Christmas Child shoebox.  Yes, those red and green boxes are ready to be picked up at strategic locations around FBC.

For those of you who are new to the project, it is sponsored each year by FBC’s Woman’s Society.  Last year with the help of FBC Kids, we delivered 50 boxes to the drop off location.  The boxes, which are delivered to over 100 countries, are filled with items for boys and girls ages 2-4, 5-9, and 10-14.  They can include new toys, school supplies, clothes and hygienic items and especially your love and prayers.  (No guns, knives, war-related toys, liquids or medications.)  Each box contains an instruction flyer and you can go online to here for additional information.  Boxes can be returned to Jean or gini or left at the security desk in the O Street lobby anytime through mid-October (sooner rather than later).
