Operation Christmas Child Shoebox Ministry


2022 Shoebox Ministry Information

Our theme this year is "Each One, Reach One". Our challenge is to pack a shoebox to provide gospel opportunities to represent each member of our congregation. The total cost of a box (including the box contents and shipping donation) is around $25. When broken down, this is the less than the cost of one cupcake a month from January- October! We will have periodic campaigns during the year, but here is a list of common items that we encourage you to pick up while shopping. (You can also donate money at any time.) Keep in mind the size or the box when shopping! Thank you in advance for your prayers and for doing our part in sharing the "good news"!

Supply list: pencils, crayons, colored pencils, marble notebooks, 5X7 legal pads, coloring books or fun pads, pencil pouches/boxes, toothbrush multipacks, washcloths, t-shirts, plastic cups or small containers with lids, simple dresses, socks, shoes, flip flops, combs, picks, brushes, hair ties, bandanas, hats, gloves, mittens, small blankets, toys, dolls, toy cars, deflated soccer balls with pumps, small footballs, jump ropes, tennis balls, compact games Please do not pack: war-related items, camouflage items, toothpaste, anything with liquid, anything medicated

Please pray for all ministries and outreach – for participants, for safety, and for acceptance of salvation.
