Operation Christmas Child
Boiling Springs Baptist Church believes in spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ. One way we do this is by Operation Christmas Child. You can click on the OCC Logo and go to their website to find out more. Please be praying for our
2021 campaign for Operation Christmas Child. It is likely still going to be somewhat different due to the ongoing global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but God is still going to use this ministry to glorify His name. Below is a sample list of items that you can put in your shoebox this year for this ministry.
Some Ideas Include:
Comb, brush, washcloth, soap( put in baggie), water bottle, cup, plate, bowl, pencils, pencil sharpeners, flashlights with extra batteries, crayons, colored pencils, markers, small craft kits, coloring books, books, playdoh, blankets, hard plastic utensils (toddler spoon and fork), hair bows, bracelets, sunglasses, glow sticks, blanket, t-shirt, shorts, pants, socks, shoes, age appropriate toys, a personal note from you or your family with a picture
Items that cannot be used:
Candy; toothpaste; gum; used or damaged items; war-related items such as toy guns, knives, or military figures; chocolate or food of any kind; liquids or lotions; medications or vitamins; breakable items such as snow globes or glass containers; aerosol cans, scary toys (Batman isn’t scary to us but someone who doesn’t know may think he is).
In addition it cost $9.00 dollars to ship a shoebox. You can place $9.00 in your shoebox or you can donate to the church and the church will take care of it for you.
Or if you do not want to make your own box you can give money towards helping our children and youth make shoeboxes. For $25.00 we can make a shoebox and pay for the shipping.
Here are some deadline that you need to know:
All Shoeboxes and monetary donations are due by Sunday November 22, 2020. If you cannot get them in by then you will need to deliver them yourself.
We will dedicate the shoeboxes during our Thanksgiving Service on Sunday November 22, 2020, so please be here.
Thank you for supporting Operation Christmas Child!
