Operation Christmas Child

This year we are making the opportunity available for members and friends of Resurrection to participate in the Operation Christmas Child Shoebox collection.

Instead of collecting items as we have done in the past, Shoeboxes will be available at church for each person or family to take home and fill on your own. Shoeboxes are available for anyone to take one, or more than one.

To participate:

  • 1. Select a gender and age group you want to donate to by checking the corresponding box on the label enclosed in each Shoebox.
  • 2. For each box, select a quality “WOW” toy such as a doll, soccer ball with pump, or stuffed animal. Then, fill the rest of the box with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies (see the Shoebox Gift Suggestions available online and included in print form in each Shoebox).
  • 3. The box pickup date is November 18, 2019. All boxes need to be back to the church or personally to Ronnie Hay by this date. The last Sunday to bring your box to church will be November 17th.
  • 4. Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift.

Resurrection will cover the $9 per box donation requested by Samaritan’s Purse to cover shipping and other project costs. (You may contribute to this cost voluntarily if you would like.)
