After receiving their shoebox gift, children are invited to participate in The Greatest Journey. Through this 12-lesson course, which includes Bible stories and Scripture memorization, they learn how to follow Christ in their daily lives as they share Him with friends and family. More than 23.3 million children have enrolled in this program since 2009.
Next Sunday, November 1, we will kick off our annual Operation Christmas Child collection, an opportunity for all of us to spread the gospel throughout the world. Empty shoeboxes will be handed out at the doors after each service along with instructions for filling and returning your boxes. If you are unable to attend our in-person services or simply prefer not to shop in the stores, you can still participate by building a box online at Samaritan’s Purse. If you have any questions, contact Janet Grasso at [email protected] or Jo-Lynn Brooks at [email protected].
