Since 1990, more than 146 million children in over 130 countries have experienced God’s love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child. – Calvary has participated in this ministry since 1994.
This year in lieu of our annual shoebox packing party we have placed items on the tables in the multi-purpose room for you to select from to start filling your shoeboxes. There are also empty shoeboxes there and in the sanctuary for you to take. We have put a brochure with instructions in each box. If you have your own shoeboxes to pack, brochures with labels are also available.
If you need shoeboxes or labels and are not worshiping with us in person or can’t pick them up, contact the church and we’ll drop them off for you.
Pack your shoeboxes and bring them to the church on or before Shoebox Sunday. Please do not put any money cash or checks in the shoebox. Instead mail any contributions to Samaritan’s Purse or drop it off at the church with your shoebox not in it.
If you need help or have questions about how to pack a shoebox here’s a video from VeggieTales veggies Bob and Larry with the information:
There will be a special time during the service where we’ll ask God’s blessing on the children who will receive our shoeboxes. Bring your shoeboxes to church and they can be placed in the multipurpose room or sanctuary depending on which service you attend.
