Praise God for the over 300 boxes that were packed for Operation Christmas Child on Friday, November 9. Thank you to everyone who helped in any way, from helping with fundraising, set up, clean up, donating money or items for the boxes, etc. You are appreciated!
Operation Christmas Child is a ministry of Samaritan's Purse. Each year in November shoeboxes are packed and then sent off to children all over the world. These "Gospel Opportunity" or "GO boxes" not only deliver simple gifts to children but they also bring the good news of Jesus to them and their families. Lives are transformed because of these boxes.
Through out the year we collect items for the shoeboxes as well as financial donations to help purchase needed items for boxes as well as help cover shipping costs for the boxes. Items can be placed in the designated basket under the coffee machine near the Missions' board. Financial donations can be dropped in the offering box and designated for OCC.
RHCC packed and collected a total of 161 boxes in 2017!
Our next packing party is Friday, November 9 beginning at 6:30pm. Join us! Enjoy cookies and hot chocolate along with fun fellowship while packing shoeboxes! To volunteer to help with set up or for more information, contact the church office.
