Thank you everyone who participated in our Operation Christmas Child ministry! This year we had a total of 282 shoeboxes – 270 prepared at the church office and 12 donated to us already prepared. Remember to be praying for the shoeboxes that they make it through customs and are true blessing of salvation to the children and communities that receive the boxes.
Join Risen King Community Church in supporting Samaritan’s Purse ministry Operation Christmas Child. Simple shoeboxes are wrapped and filled with toys, toiletries, and school supplies and distributed to children in need all over the world, along with the Gospel message and ongoing teaching and support for the community. Last year we packed, wrapped, and shipped over 200 boxes and this year we hope to do at least 300. Here’s how you can help:
- We especially need pencils, pencil sharpeners, washcloths, soap, toothbrushes, combs, and plush toys
- We still need good shoeboxes with lids
- We will need help wrapping the shoeboxes
- We need Christmas gift wrap, or any generic wrap
- Still need donations of small toys, school supplies, and toiletries
- Donate your spare change at church each week to help with shipping costs
- See Blair McCoy for more information on how you can help bless children this Christmas.
