Operation Christmas Child –

The Gospel is shared with children when they open their shoebox gifts.

Every shoebox gift is an excellent resource for evangelism and discipleship which leads to the multiplication of new believers and churches around the world.

From the shoebox packers who pray for the boys and girls who will receive their gifts to the local teachers who pray for the children who attend The Greatest Journey discipleship classes, prayer is the key to the work of Operation Christmas Child.

Last year we did 101 boxes and all of them had shipping labels.  Shoeboxes went to The Philippines, Ukraine and The Pacific Islands.

This year the entire congregation of First Immanuel has participated in preparing shoeboxes for spreading the Word of God.  Support has been in monetary gifts (purchase supplies, pay the shipping fee), donations of fabric and/or yarn which turned into clothing, glass cases, and tote bags and Prayer.  It is great working as a team.

We have a coloring page (in English and Spanish) to work as a letter to the recipient of the shoebox.  They are available at church every Sunday or if you have a printer at home you could print one and deliver it to Beth.  We’ll put the letter in each shoebox, if we can get one for every shoebox.

If making a cash or check donation (make it out to First Immanuel), please mark it “shoebox” fund – it could be put in the collection plate or mailed to the church.
