OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD -- Help us reach a goal of sending 600 shoeboxes to help impact kids for Christ.  Every gift-filled shoebox is a powerful tool for evangelism and discipleship—transforming the lives of children and their families through the Good News of Jesus Christ.  In addition to the items you assemble -- each shoebox will contain a New Testament Bible and a booklet telling about Jesus Christ, written in the child’s own language, entitled “The Greatest Gift of All.” Each child will also have an opportunity to attend a 12-week study to learn about Jesus.  Matthew 28:19 tells us to “. . . go and make disciples of all nations. . . .”  What an opportunity for us to be a part in helping reach others for Christ. 

On Sunday, November 5th at 5:00 pm, there will be a Shoebox Packing Party at FCC to assemble hundreds of shoeboxes.  Shoebox Items Still Needed Include:  Washcloths, Combs, Hairbrushes, Pencil Erasers

Some Optional Items Include:  T shirts, Shorts (elastic waists), Socks, Flip Flops, Baseball Caps, Solar Calculators, Nerf Type Balls

Ways to help at FCC craft sessions include sewing pillowcase dresses and tote bags, making bracelets, jump ropes, spin top toys, assembling pencil boxes, sharpening pencils, dressing Barbie dolls, etc.  All willing helpers are welcome.  Only 6 weeks are left before assembling the shoeboxes.

 Help with $1 per week in an OCC offering.  Each shoebox costs $9 shipping and handling.
