Hey BBC, it's that time of year again! Once again we will be participating in Operation Christmas Child, an initiative of Samaritan's Purse to see the Gospel reach thousands of children around the globe. It's a simple way for you to demonstrate Christ's love!
Beginning Sunday, October 17, 2021, you can pick up empty shoeboxes after the worship services. Take some time over the next few weeks to pick up items to fill the shoebox to bless a child. All the instructions you need for packing, labelling and shipping a shoebox are included with each shoe box. It couldn't be simpler!
You can pack one shoebox, or 101 shoeboxes - the choice is yours! Once your boxes are packed, please make sure they are properly labelled (labels are provided) and return them to the church. We will be receiving packed shoeboxes up until Sunday, November 21, 2021. After this date, we can no longer receive shoeboxes.
Many of the children receiving a shoebox have never received a gift before. Let's bless these kids not only with a gift to open, but with an opportunity to see the love of Jesus in action and to hear the Gospel.
Over the years BBC has contributed thousands of shoeboxes to the efforts of Operation Christmas Child. Let's continue that tradition this year. Pack a shoebox, make a difference!
