LPC Families!


Operation Christmas Child brings joy and hope to children in desperate situations around the world through gift filled shoe boxes and the Good News of God’s love. This year, more than ever, this ministry needs our help!

Please prayerfully consider filling one or two shoeboxes. (You can use a shoebox provided by Operation Christmas Child, or simply use an actual shoe box, or a plastic shoebox sized tub.)

This is a great way for your family to work together on a mission. Take your child(ren) shopping, let them choose the items they'd like to put in their box, talk about it with them, and pray for the children who will receive your box(es).


Bring your filled shoeboxes to the church anytime between now and Sunday, November 22, and leave them on the designated cart as you walk in, or, drop them off at the church office during office hours: Monday-Thursday 8 - 4 p.m., Friday 8 - 3 p.m.
 
Operation Christmas Child suggests that $9 donation be included with each shoebox to help cover costs like shipping and ministry materials. If you choose to make this donation, please include a check made out to Samaritan’s Purse inside your box at the top.
Thank you for your help with this awesome ministry! If you need a shoebox some will be available at church. For more information or to pack a shoebox on-line click the button below.
