Operation Christmas Child
Coordinator: Michele Duke

 

Contact Michele Duke at 806-624-2023 or 806-260-0029 if you would like to help with this ministry.

We have been blessed with Operation Christmas Child red and green plastic tubs to fill this year. Our new emphasis this year is placing a new book in each box. The inner dimension of the box is 10 1/2 x 5 1/2. Hard backed books need to fit into this size. Soft back books can be bent if needed.

Please make sure that all shoebox items are of quality to last, as this may be the the only time these children get a physical gift which we pray will lead to a spiritual gift.

Thank you for being a mission minded church.
